Those riders who would like some comfortable, less hilly laps (45km) of the river during the week are invited to join Owen, Shane, Roz and Michelle on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
The midweek tranny rides meet at the usual SPR time and place, that being 5:30 under the Narrows bridge (city side) on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Transitional riders should congregate towards the rear of the assembled line/group as the group will leave directly after the main SPR group has departed.
The route will avoid the lumpier bits of Mosman Park and Applecross and the pace will be locked religiously at 28.5 km/hr (give or take for the prevailing wind).
For those not entirely in the loop, there have been 3 separate SPR groups leaving from the Narrows on Thursdays of late. 12 – 15 Main group riders have been following the Fast group around the river at their own pace (and staying together), followed by 4 or so who ride with the Transitionals. So you don’t have to hold 45km/hour to Christ Church to ride with a group on Thursdays any more.
(Rumour also has it that the Tuesday “little ring – zen” Main ride will return to its more restrained state tomorrow – and may be split depending on numbers)
