Well Done to all the riders listed here who done the mini / grand slam 2010 series, particularly for those who did the 5 grand slam rides
Bring on 2011 series with new routes announced and boy o boy !! we are in for a surprise
#1 Gumeracha - 40km/80km - 20 Feb
#2 Willunga - 50km/100km - 27 March
#3 Williamstown - 60km/120km - 29 May
#4 Echunga - 75km/150km - 28 Aug
#5 Mt Pleasant - 100km/200km - 9 Oct
I'm hoping to do 4 of the Slams next year, one is the day after my 50th so unlikely I'll make that one. Early start with a ride in Feb at Gumeracha, wonder if they'll throw in Checkers.
are these events in the slam open to varying speed levels? I am fairly new to it all and am working up to some sort of level of fittness. I can maintain around 28-32km/hr on the flats but really need to work on my climbing. This seems like a really great thing to have a crack at.
TdF 2011: as Cadel Evans crosses the finish at Alpe-d’Huez: "I reckon tonight in hindsight he may have won the Tour de France tomorrow." The man Phil Ligget !!!
The Grand Slams are great rides, I did 3 this year (2 grands and 1 mini) my aim for 2011 is to do all 5 grands, the rides have everything in a ride, rolling hills, climbs and great views, not forgetting sun, wind and rain, oh did i mention wind?
the GS rides are great, but y'know, I'm not seeing the surprise.
Echunga again? Meh
Mt Pleasant again? meh
hmmm, this could interest me. Is each ride usually 170/210 per ride? Cause that would then make it less of an interest ...
Those costs $170/210 are for the full series of five rides.
what the usual process with it? I register and pay, then do I need to register interest in each ride as they come up? I assume there is no pressure to do all of them if you sign up? Also can people participate in only a ride at reduced cost, I have a few friends who might be interested in 1 or 2 rides. Thanks. I guess I can just email Bike SA for an answer.
Pay for the full series (discounted) or pay on a ride by ride basis. Good value, well supported rides, invaluable for those who are more confident with others and knowing there's backup around the corner
