Wingello Ride - FAST
The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.
4Km SW of Wingello village on Caoura Rd there's a small base camp within the forest - seems as good a place as any.
I want to post this ride because I'm always keen on meeting new people, and (I hate saying this) people often ask me (or Jenny) for advice at races when we really dont have time to talk, so this is a good chance.
However - this wont be a slow ride. Its probably race pace for most people (how do you say that without sounding arrogant?!?!?!?)
Myself and Jenny (Fay) will be heading to Wingello on Sunday morning for a 4 hr ride.
For more clarity, or a benchmark, she rode 4.28 at Convict this year, and I rode 4.02 (ish)...
Its likely to involve 2 Red loops, and 2 Yellow loops. Probably alternating. After each lap, its back to the car, fresh bottle, then push on.
The first red loop will be ridden fairly easily, but is still likely to feel fast for some - only because we dont stop at all. Especially not at the top of climbs (cardinal training sin #1 - stopping at the top of a climb). It may be that we roll slowly for a bit, but not really stop.
You are welcome to come along, even for one loop, and join us, but I hate feeling bad for leaving people behind - so I'm putting it out there that it will be 20kph average speed. The ride will start slower though, with the speed increasing througout - so maybe the first loop will be closer to 18kph.
We'll get there for 8ish, to start the ride at 8.30
