It’s a long weekend from September 15 – 17th – yay ! That means there is more time for riding but it also means big traffic jams in the mountains – boo.
As a result this weekend we will offer 2 rides ;
1. A night ride into the mountains and overnight stay on Thursday night (Night Ride/ Overnight Stay)
2. A regular Serk Ride on Friday
This ride structure is set up to ensure we are not stuck in traffic jams in the vans or riding on congested mountain roads.
Day 1. Thursday Sept 15th. Night Ride 90km
Depart Serk at 4.30pm for a fun group ride all the way to Tom’s mountain retreat. We will stop along the way for a light dinner in Huairou before switching on the lights and riding up the hill into the darkness.
On arrival enjoy a hot shower, post ride snacks and drinks. We’ll gather around the wood fire and enjoy the usual post ride yarns well into the evening.
Day 2. Friday Sept 16th 90km / 130km
Up early for the Serk Special Breakfast and coffee. 3 options for riding today as per the usual Serk Ride format. Riders will join us from the city this morning.
