Hi all

On wednesday evening there will be a road bike ride heading out from the Zurich Tiefenbrunnen station. The intention is for it to be a socially paced ride around some nice countryside, with a few 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 40-50km 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

Any decision as to whether this is going ahead? Weather is looking very unpredictable.

Re: Road bike ride - Zurich

Apologies but in light of the impending deluge due to hit Zurich later on I am cancelling this event.

Other rides have been put in the social events calendar for Thurs 30th June and Thurs 7th July. Hopefully we'll get luckier with the weather!

Cheers
Nick
