Ming Tombs Changping

Last Saturday's late afternoon / early evening ride + group dinner was hit. We will keep this format for the next few rides till the end of August when things cool down.

We will visit the Ming Tombs area for the first time this year. B group expect a heart busting climb up a concrete road to hell. A group do a big loop around Changing and Si hai and back. C group will have a nice chilled route around the reservoir.

We will meet at our usual location in the city early afternoon and then drive out to Changping and start riding each of the routes. The course will direct you back to restaurant in Changping. As riders arrive hand off your bike for us to load while you go inside and start eating. By the time all the A riders are back bikes should be all loaded and stomachs full! By the time we drive back the traffic will have reduced significantly so it will be an efficient drive back.

For self drivers the start and finish point will be different. We will keep an eye on your bike at the dinner location and after you can ride back to the start point to collect your car.

A group should bring lights incase you run out of daylight (just ask Roel what happened last week!)

We will 'go dutch' with the dinner.
