The goal for our DC riders is to cycle 300km over the long weekend but not at race pace, most probably around 30kph on the flats. We’ll definitely regroup on our rides. The next DC training ride is on the 29th of September – the racing team is going to Langebaan +-200km leaving at 06h00, while the DC social team will head to Taal Monument 130km at 06h00. Please note that normal club rides will start at 06h30 from 29th of September.
