I would say yes.
Obviously if you are a 25-30 km/hr rider it would be best to start at Mooball.
You will see lots of cyclists powering away at a fast pace.
Some of these you will see again on one of the many hills, walking.
You will be tempted to stick on the back of a bunch, but it is more relaxing to pedal at your own pace.
Big bunches are very erratic on hilly and windy country roads and it can be very anxiety provoking.
