ERC Saturday Shop Ride

30
MAR
6:30 AM Every 4 weeks on Saturday
Meet Up Spot Elite Racing Cycles, 164 Beaufort Street Northbridge
Casual (No-Drop) / Mostly Flat

We have a new structure for the weekly ERC shop ride. Each Saturday we leave from the shop at 6:30am for the usual loop covering Mounts Bay Road, Subiaco, City Beach, Fremantle, Mosman Park the finishing up at Tiger Tiger just off King Street for coffee.

The format used to involve two bunches, one leaving at 6:30 then the second leaving at 6:45. This meant it was hard for riders to progress from the slower bunch to the faster.

We now have the one bunch leaving at 6:30. This allows people to gauge where they are at by the time we hit the Brewery on Mounts Bay Road. We have a few sprints and climbs on the route but meet points after every one (nobody is left behind).

Sprint points are as follows-

Oceanic Drive at Bold Park - Catch up on West Coast Highway

Port Beach - Catch up at bus stop on Stirling Highway

Water Tower - Wait at Water Tower

Devils Elbow - Wait at Osborne Parade

Monument - Catch up on Hackett Drive

Mounts Bay - Cafe

This is a strict no-drop ride. No headphones, no stop sign / red light running and leave your ego at home.

Remember, if you can easily hold 30km/h solo, 33/34 will be a breeze in a bunch.
