2 Bergs and a Col. Pay attention to this loopy route. For the B ride everyone will regroup after the first descent of the Berg on Watson, and after the descent of the Col by Leslie. After the second time up and over the Berg, it is everyone for themselves to the finish. The A ride can hammer away with a little more aggression. Everyone should bring lights as the sun is setting a little earlier.
Since it’s the last Thursday of the month, we’re heading to the Wooly after the ride. The patio may or may not be open, but it will be down to about 11 degrees by then.
Here is a route to help strengthen those climbing legs. It could make for a feisty A group ride, the B ride will keep things more steady and always regroup at the stop sign after the Col de Watson.
It’s that time of year again – the monthly Thursday socials are back!
With the longer days and warmer temperatures it’s great to get to know your fellow SRCC members. Following the last Thursday ride for the summer months, let’s meet at The Wooly for food/drink.
Note: Some Thursday B riders may ride directly to The Wooly from the end point of the scheduled ride in full SRCC lycra and bike in tow. For all other SRCC members, please feel free to arrive at 9:15pm.
Ride cancelled. Too much rain with the threat of lightning. Save your legs for P2A.
Weather forecast is iffy, keep your fingers crossed. We will attempt a little intensity mixed in with the Thursday B ride in order to help prepare riders who are looking to move up to the Thursday A ride in the future. The A group can go ahead at the 35km/h pace with some higher intensity sections. The B group will stick closer to the 32km/h speed with 2 exceptions. When looking at the route, you will notice we do a loop in the Side Road 25 area (Bayden’s old training loop). At that little zig zag section, those who want to increase the intensity and hammer for one lap (approximately 9km) can do so. People can also choose to stay more comfortable. Once finished the loop and back at the zig zag section, everyone will regroup and carry on their merry way together. The last section of the ride along Arkell from 1st Line to Watson is also be a good place to ramp up the speed for those interested in a little suffering.
