*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Lausanne
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: MGM cafe in Ouchy

Hello all,

This is a copy of the same event in 2010..........just another date

Since I have no knowledge of where to meet in Lausanne, I thought that same place as last year would be a good choise.

***********************************
Given that there seem to be a few of us planning to do the Cyclotour du Leman I thought it would be good to catch up for a few evening drinks (obviously non-alcoholic with just the right level of electrolytes) beforehand.

The thinking is that everyone will be in a better mood at for catch-ups/introductions in the evening rather than at 06.30 the next morning

The plan is to head to MGM cafe in Ouchy at 20.00 for a couple of quiet drinks. The bar can be found as follows:

1) Take the metro line to Ouchy
2) Exit metro station, stare at the stunning view of the lake and then turn right
3) Walk 100m and enter bar on right

Hopefully see a few of you there.
*********************************************

Additionally we could even meet up for dinner before the drinks.....?

Cheers.

Re: Cyclotour du Leman - pre-event drinks

well i cant make drinks but will be riding, I think! What's it like? Everything i have read would suggest the ride is pretty hard - as in quick paced and long. Are there a decent number of relatively slow riders?

Re: Cyclotour du Leman - pre-event drinks

It is a relatively flat ride (compared to some). It is not a race so you pick your own pace. You will probably end up riding with people who are at your level.

Be careful on the French side as there are certain areas with cobble stones and some railway tracks you have to go over as well. Will be an issue if it is raining. Some of the roundabouts can be an issue as well. There is also some construction going on in FR and CH so be careful in these zones.

Hope for good weather (cool but not pouring rain like last year).

thanks Verbier. Forecast is 24 and sunny, so perfect.
The official jersey has pockets? a daft question perhaps but how do you carry all your stuff - you can tell i am a keen amateur!

I have not done this particular bike ride before but several other long races with thousand of participants. I am quite sure that not all riders are racing and it will be possible for you to find a group of riders doing your preferred speed.
Enjoy the race.

Yes, there are three slots in the back (typical cycling jersey).

There are a number of rest stops along the way as well so you don't need to "pack a lunch".
