GW member, Alan Green, at Mera Peak Summit - NEPAL. 6,461m and -15 degrees!
This morning we gave the 44 riders who came along for the GW ride the opportunity to try this or try that!
We held a GW TRI-RIDE, ie three different rides through the Barossa Valley, with the first 30 kms being common to all three routes. We rode to Tanunda together and then the riders made the big decision as to which of three routes they would continue on. They had 59km, 76km and 92km options to choose from.
The ride conditions were near perfect again. Nice cool temp, minimal wind factor and a protective cloud cover for most of the incident free rides.
We call this section of our AC post a “ride summary” because the GW ride experience is best described by those who rode with us. So, keep tuning in over the next few days as the riders tell us about their ride.
We will tell you now that the feed-back after the rides today was again extremely positive. THANK YOU to everyone who rode with us today…you are a killer group to kick start the weekend with!
NEXT WEEK: We head back to the hills. We will be holding a BEGINNER HILLS ride and a harder HILLS ride. Full details will be posted on AC Events and YOU are welcome to join us.
To assist all of the newbies we continue with our CYCLING TIPS. This week we focus on:
