Considering posting up a Summer Solstice ride either for Friday 21/12 or Saturday 22/12. Which date would best suit everyone? Considering the destination would be Mt Lofty Summit or open to other ideas for discussion to see what people would like ?
To keep up with tradition - Summer up freeway down norton, Winter up norton down freeway.But im a traditionalist though.
I like the rationale and seems rather chronological like it should be :)
Last year the group started at Bocelli, up the freeway and back down the same way finishing at Bocelli, a small group of slower riders started simutaneously at the Tollgate, the two groups arrived at the Bollards at approx the same time. The good thing about finishing at Bocelli is summer weather, outdoor seating and easy to keep your eye on the bikes. I think AVO did the organising last year.
My ritual is get the heart pumping on the Lynton-Belair, then through Belair NP in the evening light (nice and quiet) to meet up at the top. The downward momentum is likely to see me overshoot the CBD a little ... and it is a Friday.
Sounds like a great idea - who knows who is doing what then :-)
I'd be keen for Friday evening!
