Meeting Point: Zurich Letzigrund tram stop

Hi all

On thursday evening there will be a road bike ride heading out from the Zurich Letzigrund tram stop. The intention is for it to be a socially paced ride around some nice countryside, with a few small climbs, some fun descents and a stop at the end somewhere for some food and a beer.

The exact route will be determined as we go depending on the abilities of those who attend but should be something in the region of 35km or so. The ride is intended for road/racing bikes (i.e. curved handlebars and narrow tyres)
. However we will all ride together and ensure that the stronger riders respect the "group" pace and that no one is left behind! There are plenty of bail-out options to either cut the route short or head for a train station if anyone doesn't fancy doing the whole route.

All riders should also be familiar with general group cycling safety guidelines and must wear a helmet. This is not a supervised ride and everyone will be participating at their own risk.

Cheers
Nick

I just noticed that this ride is scheduled to start at 19:00 (so a bit later than ones in the past), so thought I would make sure that was noticed by all intending to participate!

Re: Afterwork road bike ride

Thanks for leading us all on such a great ride, Nick. It was nice to experience a different area than I had before, and it was really beautiful. Great to have so many riders show up - What a way to kick off the season!

If you or anyone is able to organize a ride for next Thursday, that'd be great (I can't since I already have another commitment).

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Um, bud given that the ride took place more than ten days ago - you might want to reconsider your plans tonight?
