*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Triemli Tram Stop

The usual Tuesday Mountain Bike ride will take place this week. Meeting is at 18:45 at the Triemli TRAM stop.

The route will be up Uetliberg, a quick break to enjoy the view from the lookout at the top, and then either continue out the ridge taking in a few sections of trail along the way before descending one of the less well known trails or do the antenna trail

A quick bevy once we are finished the trail is always an option!

If you are interested RSVP here. All welcome.

Small Print: Mountain biking can be dangerous, if you participate in this ride you do so at your own risk and agree to wear a helmet. No helmet, no ride. A mountain bike with knobbly tyres and front suspension is neccesary for this ride.

Re: Mountain Bike Ride 7th July

Bump.

If anyone has a direct line to the weather gods can you put in a good word for tomorrow.

@Jekyll. You could bring the baby. I'm sure he'd love to go down the Antenna trail in the Trailer.

I'm certain that he'd love it. I can't imagine how hard it would be slipping and sliding though those switchbacks with 20kg of ballast helping you on your way, the trailer always lagging 1 corner behind...

On a positive note, I should collect my new rear wheel tomorrow. Wanted a slightly more robust rim but choice was limited by my weight-weenie 28 spoke hub

Cracking TdF stage tonight, Hope you guys have fun tomorrow. Perhaps I'll while away the evening fixing some of my punctured tube collection...

Re: Mountain Bike Ride 7th July

No ride if this rain continues.

It's looking miserable out there now. Will make the last call at around 5pm.

Re: Mountain Bike Ride 7th July

Pity it didn't work out this week but thats the way the cookie crumbles.

I won't be able to make it next week, but if someone else wants to post the event feel free to do so. I will organise another weekday bike spin for the 21st of July.
