Why not have both ?
...on the same day ??
Now that would be a ride.
I found it a bit hard due to 3 weeks off the bike but made it OK in the end. I still think the C2C was much a better ride and safer.
Ride like Crazy seemed a lot easier than Velo even though it covers similar ground, not sure why.
Me too David, was off bike for 2 weeks and found yesterday a great ride but hard yakka, especially getting back upnover the lofty range.
So rotten to have had to miss it... :-(
2 weeks off the bike with various excuses (manflu , torrential rain etc) was not the ideal prep, but still it was a great ride. Freeway wasn't fun with the headwind, in fact nearly didn't make it down the freeway on the way there due to a sidewind gust that nearly pushed the bike over at about 50km/hr.
Only did the 50Km ride and suffered from calf and driver cramps, but feeling better now for having got out.
I'm thinking this ride is more suitable for a wider range of riders than c2c and the re-group back at Hindmarsh square worked well.
Great to see so many riders out today, especially the 500 plus who joined the free Family ride , kids & family& other less experienced riders on the Free Family Ride, this has to be our future of building cycling & encouraging newbies about the joys of riding. Awesome vibe from all that I chatted to & loved the atmosphere of Whitmore Square. Congrats to the dude from Kenya who rode the 20km - he did it on one leg, not sure if you have tried riding with one leg but reckon I would only make it to the end of my street & back! He is here in Adelaide till July so I have directed him to this site - hope he makes contact..
Thanks Chris, my family thoroughly enjoyed the family ride & Kudos to everyone who organized that. The young lads cant stop talking about it
Great, glad they had fun! What distance did they ride? Bet they will sleep well tonite...
Chris, 10 kms for both lads aged 4 and 6 are sleeping now as I type this
So the 4yr old rode or was he on a tagalong? He may be the youngest??!!
