Last week we had had three undulating rides to choose from. This week 52 riders said good-bye to Spring with a choice of 4 GW Hills rides.
One group headed off on a nice and easy 42km Beginner hills ride. Another group, who were looking for more of a challenge, rode the same route in reverse ie an Intermediate hills ride. Not long rides but most enjoyable. We got back to Café Farina’s at around 10.00am and spent the next couple of hours chatting and watching the Conquer Cancer cyclists ride past.
Concurrently two other groups had headed off on a much tougher 93km Hills ride. One group rode at a rapid pace and the other at a moderate pace. They all arrived back around lunch time. When they got home two things were clearly evident: (1) they were stuffed! and (2) they had experienced a most satisfying ride.
The riding conditions were ideal this morning and we thank all who took advantage of them to ride with Gawler Wheelers. More in-depth salacious details of today’s rides will be posted over the coming days!
NEXT WEEK: We all get back together for one big FLAT ride GW group hug!Details will be posted on AC Events and YOU are welcome to join us.
This week’s GW CYCLING TIPS for newbies is about MOTIVATION. We've all woken up on a Saturday and thought, 'I might give cycling a miss today'. "It's going to rain, it's too cold, too hot and I've been working hard all week.” Limitless Performance - The Inner Chimp is a light-hearted cycling film based on the mental struggles we go through every time we cycle.
