MBUG’s signature out-and-back ride along Northwood Rd was COVID collateral damage earlier this year, but it is back now. This ride can be as easy or as hard as you choose and it is a great one to help those who have not ridden a lot recently get back onto the saddle. Let all your friends know it is on and see if we can drum up a good crowd for the day.
The rules are simple: First we agree on two things: the first and most importantly is to agree on a venue for the post-ride coffee :-), the second is the turnback time. Once they are sorted we all start the ride together and each individual then rides the route at their own pace. At the agreed time everyone turns around and returns along the same route to the nominated coffee venue – first back grabs a table for the rest (within the COVID guidelines of course). In theory we should all arrive back together, but the reality usually turns out differently. The great thing about these rides is that unless you are the rider at the very front, if you have a problem you just wait beside the road and those in front of you will eventually come back past and help 🙂
Apart from a bit of a climb on Northwood Rd as we leave the Pucka Rd the ride is essentially flat.
