Medium Tuesday Rides
These are of 40-50Km in length, with a terrain which may contain some hills, and are ridden at an average speed of 15-20 kph.
The rides are listed every Tuesday throughout the year and commence at 9.00am at a site usually within a radius of 10-15 km from Box Hill, and which will have car parking &/or train access and toilet facilities.
The rides will be led by experienced club members who have ridden Medium Tuesday Rides for some time and will return the ride to the start point (or a designated end site) by 1.00pm.
Morning Tea/Coffee at about 10.30 – 11.00 am is a highlight of the ride and each ride leader specifies the cafe’s etc., where this will be held.
To facilitate smooth progress of the ride, the ride leaders will usually ask riders near him/her to stay at corners as ‘Markers’ to ensure that those on the ride can easily see where the leader has gone and not have to stop or take a wrong turn.
Also to ensure that no rider is left behind, or may need assistance (e.g punctures etc.) the leader will appoint a ‘Whip’ who will always ensure he/she is last on the ride and can account for everyone who has signed on for the ride.
