City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Kiosk @ Thalwil train station (lakeside)

This is a challenging and relatively fast (23-25kph) road-bike ride in the hills just outside of Zurich, that we do (almost) every Thursday... It is intended for cyclists who are experienced with biking hills and looking for a ride to challenge themselves to ride harder than they might on their own (or for the super-fit to push the rest of us!).

No ride if raining (or hailing!)... And bring lights for your bike - it will be dark towards the end of the ride.

Meeting Place: Thalwil train station, lake side (across from Kiosk)

Start Time: 6:30pm

Distance: ~40 km

Climbing: as much as we can fit in

Ride Time: ~1.5 hours

Speed: Average around 23-25 kph usually (14-16 mph)

Route: With daylight fading the idea is to cycle one-way to make sure the route is interesting. Probable route is to head out past Hirzil and then drop down to the lake once darkness arrives.

Post-ride drinks & food: wherever we end up - aimed for Rapperswil last week and ended up in Horgen so who knows !!
