We don't often do these reports anymore. To be honest that's down to me just not being prepared enough to whip a camera or phone out during the rides. I enjoy the scenery a bit too much! Plus my skill with camera phones is questionable at best. Today I was determined to get something up here primarily due to the fact that the colder it's getting, the more riders are turning up! So without further ado...
The count for today's rides was 26 and the numbers were fairly evenly split between the L Ride (for new riders or slower riders 20-22kph) and the P Ride (for riders with a bit more in the legs and are able to do 50-60km at 22-25kph). Alison organised and led the P Ride, ably assisted by Steve. Yours truly organised the L Ride and went TEC whilst Lynn graciously agreed to lead the group (for the first time I believe,so well done)
The L Ride welcomed Bruce and Scotty to their first rides and Jodie rejoined us for her second ride after completing the 'She Rides' program. All three completed the ride with a good degree of comfort. The P Ride welcomed a mixed group of regular,occasional and new faces also.
The P Ride...
The P Riders. This is the location where I start thinking we need to change the name of this group!!
Well said Wattsy, great turn out in very cold conditions. Great to ride with a great group of people.
Great report. Sorry I missed it. :(
I've enjoyed the two rides I've been on and looking forward to the next one.
Quite curious where we go next, never would have occurred to me to head along to Wheatsheaf road and go the back way to Chandler's hill.
Can you pull another surprise? Suspect you will.
Mmmm... France, LeTour and summer!
Keep an eye open on the coverage for the Pyrenees Stages 13 & 14 that finish & start in Rodez!
We've both enjoyed our initial rides with SSRC and look forward to getting back on the bike on our return.
See you all again in August - Dan & Jodie
