Monday is a public holiday and the long range weather forecast is looking promising. We’ve decided to organise a social ride starting from the city and ending with a healthy and delicious lunch at Obentos. This is a great chance to get to know some of your fellow riders and enjoy a ride without any hills !
The ride starts at Serk and will follow a flat 70 kilometre or 100km route known as the Dogmarket loop. We will split riders into 2 groups – Elite / Intermediate + (100km) and Intermediate – / Beginner (70km). If you are based in Shunyi you can also join us from Dead Ayi Rd / Jingmi Lu corner.
All riders will end up at Obentos at Grand Summit Liangmaqiao where you are welcome to enjoy a delicious and healthy lunch. Lunch is optional but comes highly recommended !
All riders are required to fill the form below by Sunday morning.
Departure Time :

Arrival Time for lunch : 15:00 – 15:30 Obentos
