Those of you who have had a ride with the CVSA group. Are they fun or tough or I guess both:) I was thinking of heading out in the hills in the morning and thought why not give it a try! Do you mainly stay together and cruise or does it get a bit "racey"? I am sure it is all kept nice and safe so are there "leaders" to watch over us? How far do you go and is it different each time or do you stick to a regular path?
I've only been a couple of times, but they are not a race, and the crew are very welcoming. They seem to do a loop around montecute or norton summit or crafers, couple of hours with good coffee afterwards. Highly recommended!
They are what you want them to be really. They break the group - of sometime more than 30 - into fast (who take a longer/ steeper route), medium and slow.. where I am. As Steve said the route is either up the freeway to Crafers or up Norton Summit and down.
Coffee at Taylor Blend is always good too.
I am going in the morning and I'm in no condition to race at the moment! Hope to see you there.
