Ok, proposing a short notice retro road ride from Hereford on Saturday 5th December
, 10.30 a.m. from my house - hone fitness for Cannock and let's rip these other guys legs off
. The following choice of routes depending on weather and what everyone fancies:
1) Hilly 35 miles - plenty of climbing, very quiet roads, great views
2) Undulating 53 miles - enough climbing to satisfy the mountain goats, still plenty of country roads
3) Hill climb special - 70+ miles that includes a good section of Ride Option 1 but also takes in the legendary Gospel Pass where stunning views are guaranteed. Can include some superb flapjack in Hay-on-Wye.
Expectation is that a retro road bike is ridden although interpretation of what that means lies with the individual. Suggest a compact or triple would make sense for routes 1 and 3. Post ride cake, tea and biscuits provided.
Please PM me if interested stating preferred route and I'll update a rider list here.
