OK, so we all know that it's a bit cold at the moment. So why the blimmin' heck are we still running gravel grinds on Tuesday mornings, when the mercury rarely tops out above the 5 degree mark?
BECAUSE WE LOVE TO RIDE, THAT'S WHY!!!
And so this week's ride will be a slog uphill to Taree's premier closeby lookout - Breakneck Lookout! It's about a 14.5km ride from the meeting point at the Taree end of the bridge to the top of the lookout. So for those of you who are good at maths, that's nearly a 30km round trip - and all before 8:00am!!!
Who's in? Here's the details:
WHEN: Tuesday 17th July, leave the meeting point at 6am SHARP!
WHERE: Meet at the cnr of Victoria and Commerce Sts (Taree end of the bridge)--CLICK FOR MAP
RETURN: Normally we'd aim for a return to town by 7:30am, but that's a pretty fast ride. Allow 2 hours - 8am return.
BRING: COLD WEATHER GEAR!!!! helmet, bike that can ride on gravel, lights. Did we mention cold weather gear?
SKILL LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE - Approximately 30km, a third of that is considerable climbing, and we'll be riding relatively quickly to make the time.
