I’m popping to velopark track for an hour or so (maybe tad more) of laps this evening at 6ish, weather permitting, if anyone feels inclined to join!

I will confirm the rides tomorrow, and in any case, if you are late, please send a text to my my phone number (07789688784) and/ or post it on Yonder.


I would love to join one of those long rides but not with the earlier start time…


I’d like to join you on the first option if that’s the one you go for, happy with the start time


I’m up for the longer ride, either route is fine.


We can go for the 1st option and I can change the time to 8.00am. How does that sound to @Sjh ?


I’d prefer a 0730 depart for the longer ride. early bird catches the worm. :slight_smile:


I’m up for the longer ride. 7.30 is good for me.


Option 1 looks good, although would prefer an 8am depart as am already 30 mins away.


I want to be back by 11.30 12.00 the latest




Thinking of doing a saturday afternoon ride at 2-ish to get the good weather in the afternoon and make it back to watch the nocturne. No specific plans yet, probably fast pace, let me know if anyone wants to tag along.


Happy with 7:30 and the longer ride :grimacing:


Tomorrow ride confirmed, the weather seems to be excellent.

Departure as planned: 7.30am + 5 min grace period
Fast pace to Raddlet.

Target 88km

Please download the map to your garmin if you can.

Here is the link again:

If you are going to be late please inform via message or on here.

See you.


I’m in for the slow-person 08:30 ride tomorrow :slight_smile: . Not sure if we have a leader but I imagine we can make it to Epping or whatever.


Hi Todd,

I said about leading tomorrow for the inclusive ride so see you at 8:30



At work now. Feeling tired so I’m not sure I will make it tomorrow as much as how I want to. It depends on how my body feel after work in the morning. IF I’m not there by 7.35 I won’t be coming. Next Sunday hopefully. …



Hi Michael/Todd…
Ill join you on the slower ride at 8.30.

See u tomrw,
