Here is Wednesday Nights ride!

We have brought the route length back into the advertised 30-50km range and in regards to speed, we have no goal (we will not exceed the avg of 28km/h). Simply we want to move as smoothly, safely and steadily as the group will allow. We want to ride as a group, not as a bunch of individuals.

Ideally we will reduce/eliminate surging and work on creating an efficient group that will allow every member of the ride to enjoy themselves and have a great ride. This is a ride for for all members but with a focus on making sure our newer members have a safe and supportive place to learn the ways of the road. It is also a place for those of us who haven't perhaps been riding alot … errr … 

If the weather isn't terrible, it will be on!

  1. It was raining, but gently (sort of), so we kept the ride on and shortened the distance.
    The group rode well, really well given the rain/spray/mud/fecal matter that was being flung about, and ended up averaging 26.3 km/h by our arrival back into Arkell.
    Besides the cold(ish)ness and the rain it was a great ride. Overall some things we can work on next Wednesday …
    – not accelerating up the climbs but holding steady so those who are less conditioned can keep up (err … I’m talking about myself here)
    – pedaling over the top of the hills, not freewheeling when cresting the hill, so that bunching doesn’t occur in the back of the group
    – continuously pedaling when on the front so there is less accordion at the back
    Just some items to work on but overall, excellent ride!
