Thursday Eve Rides
Thursday's rides are shorter, and generally a bit more intense, to try to get a good ride in an hour and a half or so.
We meet at the shop at 18:15. We leave soon after, so please show up on time, preferably a few minutes early.
The rides usually last about 1 hr 45 min, so we're back at 20:00.
The social ride:
30-35 km, 200-400 m elevation gain (eg). Typically rolling hills, with one or two moderate climbs (100-200 m eg) thrown in to get your heart rate up! We move along, but at a relaxed pace: typical speed on flat 25-27 km/hr; average 21-22 km/hr.
No one is left behind - we wait for you if you're struggling a bit uphill!
The intermediate ride:
A bit more ambitious, 40-50 km, 300-500 m eg. Rolling hills, along climb or two. Typical speed on flat 27-30 km/hr; average 23-25 km/hr. Usually no one left behind, unless a rider drastically overestimated their capacities; they will be asked politely to let the others proceed, with directions on how to get back to Geneva.
The fast ride:
The name says it all! 45-55 km, 400-600 m eg, maybe one ambitious climb. Typical speed on flat 30-33 km/hr; average 25-27 km/hr. Slower riders will be dropped, with directions on how to get back to Geneva.
*Please always check the calendar on this website to know whether or not the ride is cancelled because of weather or otherwise.
