Saturday 12 December 2015

Meet at 6.20am – Briefing
We ride over Tiekiedraai and out past the Silo’s towards Malmesbury. We will turn at the 50 km mark and retrace our steps back to Edgemead. Along Wellington road we will have a few ‘controlled intervals’ to get the heart rate up. Please consider your fellow club member next to you, the interval doesn’t give you the excuse to sprint like a demented TdF wannabee. Don’t try and squeeze through gaps that aren’t there.
