Saturdays rides for the Adults usually leave at 5:30am from Bunning’s Rothwell Car Park so be there at 5:20am – enter via Bremner Rd off Anzac Ave Rothwell , ready to leave at 6am (For those new to the club, we then come back to Coffee shop & enjoy a social chat & coffee (after the run off the bike of course!). Juniors will leave from the car park opposite Redcliffe Police Station @ 5:30am – check FB and the Newsletter for last minute changes.
Adults generally have 4 to 5 groups catering for the full range of experience and distances including, beginners, Intermediate and advanced groups. Distances and terrain are varied to suit preparation for upcoming races or training phase. Juniors have 2 groups dependant on age/ability (speak to Gai)
SAFETY FIRST – I’d like to again remind you to please remember to obey all road rules, including stopping at red lights & stop signs. Please also don’t use iPods etc during our RRTC group rides. The penalty for not obeying road rules is 20 push ups – which must be performed when you get back to the coffee club. I ask all ride leaders & everyone on the ride to take this seriously. The positive recognition for doing the right thing is we all enjoy our rides more and motorists are more pleasant towards us !!
Your Saturday ride is an LSD (long steady/slow distance) ride – it isn’t meant to be high intensity (unless you are required to do efforts or a fast TT by your coach)
