The Tour is almost upon us and as a prelude we are holding the Tour de Lane Cove National Park on Saturday July 7.
This is a club ride for everyone. We hope that everyone from the less experienced rider, who is comfortable in group riding, through to the very experienced rider, will join us. We want ladies to join us. Lots of ladies. And we welcome teen aged children who are comfortable in group riding, though we ask they be accompanied by at least one of their parents.
This is about coming together as a club and to encourage those riders who don't get out regularly but want the chance to ride with other like minded people in a safe, inclusive, supportive and social environment. So park your urge to race to an imaginary line or take the KOM or QOM and ride for pure enjoyment.
The ride will be around 45km long, on bike paths or quieter back streets at a pace that will suit everyone. It will start at Park Bikes at 6.30am and take us to Lane Cove National Park and back again, where we will all have coffee and a chance to catch up with other riders and club members.
If numbers are large, we will split into smaller groups. And we will have a number of experienced riders there to help and support you.
Here is the route we will be taking - https://www.strava.com/routes/13981850
