Now that the Triathlon season has come to an end it is time to get back into some hills riding. Saturday 13th May is a nice introduction back to the hills with a 75km ride starting at Guildford Railway Station and riding out to Mundaring Weir. As these are group rides they are suitable for everyone with a base fitness, there is always regular regroup stops to keep the ride together.
Check the calendar on the club website for details of this ride and for the rest of May, rides for June will be posted shortly.
There is a bit of a hidden agenda here in that I along with 20+ club members will be heading off in July and August for 2 weeks in the French Pyrenees, climbing mountains like the Hautacam, Tourmalet, Perysourde, some climbs are over 20km in length and reach altitudes over 2,000 meters. So we all need a lot of hill climbing!
Any suggestions for rides are welcome and also if a slower group e.g. Chocolatiers wishes to do the same routes at a slower pace this can be arranged too.”
