Group Ride: RFWYA Dandenongs
Location: Rapture Cafe (41 Forest Road, Ferntree Gully)
Hosted: John Van Seters
Time: 6:30am Tuesday
Duration: 1 hour
This is a social ride group for the pure hill junkies. The group takes a tour of the steep backstreets that run parallel to Forest Road. With gradients that can peak at 24%. The easiest climb you will be looking at an 8% average, and a moderate level of fitness is required. You can take the hills as hard or slow as you like. The group will wait at the top till the last rider comes along before moving onto the next climb. You are guaranteed to do a lot of vertical in a short space of time. Its a nice little bonus to have some good company along the way.
Ideally suited for those wishing to fit in a quick ride before work. It is a good excuse to set your alarm early to do a big ride.
This is a social ride and new riders are welcome.
As cyclists we do enjoy a cup of Coffee. One of the best parts of this ride is stopping at the Rapture Café after. For a cup of Coffee & a chat, and maybe an excuse to talk bike.
