The Executive Chef of the Hotel (Ignacio Virgen) is a cyclist and has put together an excellent deal for day. Not only is the brunch 25% off the regular price but free flow house wine and soft drinks have been included. It's going to be a brunch to remember !

In terms of the ride there are 2 options (actually these events are all about the food and the riding just gives you an excuse to eat more)
A. Meet at Serk and ride out to Laoshan for a few laps around the park. Approx 80km
B. Meet at Serk and ride out along Changan Street and back Approx 43km.
This is a great event to bring a friend along to that might not be a hard core cyclist. The ride is flat and easy !
