Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Enge

Dear EF,

According to the android app 'weatherPro HD', tomorrow (Thurs 26th) should be warm(ish) and sunny in the evening... I'm thinking about dusting off the racer and going for a... gentle meander.

If anyone wants to join, let me know. I suggest meeting in the square at Enge - I'll be there, dressed in my very tightest lycra from 18.10... I think we should leave at 18.20. It starts to get dark slightly after 20.00 so we don't want to be out too long - and anyway, that leaves more time for coffee.

The only route I really know... is to head out past adliswil, climb the Albispass, turn right, go straight, climb the hill, turn right... and then we're back at Altstetten / Wiedikon. Conveniently near where I live. All told it's about 35 - 40k, with two hills, nothing too bad I think. A nice gentle start to the year. If anyone keen wants to come along you can do the hills twice :-).

The pace will be social - at the pace of whoever is slowest. No pirates code here.

If anyone is keen send me a message tomorrow and I'll hang around.
Simon

P.S I know somewhere around there may be a group of people going for the 'real' thursday night rides (road bikes). If we can find them we'll gatecrash that :-).

  • MissS - Would love to come, but depends on work. 18:10 is a little early for me, if you delay until 18:40 I should be able to make it.

Have been wanting to go up that albispass for a while, not sure if I'm quite fit enough yet...

Re: Thursday night ride?

You might get a few takers here. I've seen a road ride on Sunday and got a mail this morning that Thursday rides will be starting soon. I've not been on any rides with them, but I've met a couple of guys who do go out and it seems to be a really active community.

Re: Thursday night ride?

I'll be beasting it back from Sihlporte -> Unterageri via the paths tonight, so will be cream-crackered tomorrow.

I'm going to try and wear my pegs out a bit more on the Diavel instead.

Re: Thursday night ride?

At the moment I'm thinking we delay until 18.40 in order to give MissS a chance to arrive... as there is only three of us at the moment!

P.S... confident in the next time. Perhaps I'll even get organised and give some more advanced notice :-).
