SUN 09/10 BIG HILLSBelair - Hahndorf
Meet @ 8:00am City
Righteo! Time to get serious, Amy's Ride is four weeks away. Last time we did this, Frank was still recovering from his Dad's 60th the night before, this time around he's been getting ready for the Crit season, either way you know he'll make you hurt.
Read description below and know what route your doing when you rock up. Options for 90, 75, 65km. Only 90km for the long ride but your legs are going to file for a restraining order after this abuse. Two options to get to Hahndorf - Plenty of options to get home (probably best sorted out in Hahndorf). All meet at Hahndorf for coffee.
The harder route has a steep climb and is a little longer to Sterling. Saddle Hill is the climb - easier then checkers more of a long grind then a smash fest (most BG will be fine). Both options home form Hahndorf will climb a section of road from Verdun to Carey Gully that runs parallel to Greenhill (Beaumont Rd - Gum Flat Rd). AW
