PLEASE NOTE - CHANGE OF DATE TO SATURDAY 6 FEB
A social, friendly ride along the course of the Century Ride which has been enjoyed by riders in previous Bike Weeks. Led by Peter Thurling, this will be a supportive team ride along this scenic but challenging route. It will be a "no drop" ride i.e the group will stick together on climbs and no-one will be left behind.
Please Note: The group will be restricted to 25 riders, to keep it low key and easily manageable under our Social Rides program. People planning to ride MUST book a place by RSVP'ing below.
This Social Ride: 4-C-108. i.e. Rolling hills, some steep climbs, on sealed roads, brisk pace (20-23 kph), 108km. Your ride leader is Peter Thurling.
Highlights are Grasstree Hill, riding in a bunch (two abreast) over the Richmond Bridge and the quiet Gellibrand and Rifle Range Road down at South Arm. It will be a great day out in the saddle but you’ll also earn it.
Please note this is a small group ride. There will be a sweep to assist the ride leader, but there will be NO additional support such as direction markers and checkpoints providing refreshments. Bring your own water, sun protection, rain protection, basic repair kit, map etc.
Meet at Bellerive Boardwalk 15 minutes prior to the start, which will be at 8am.
