A few of the forum guys have set up a ride under "Meeting Point" maybe we could look at doing the same on a Sunday if you are interested...I could do with the practice riding with a group...

the South Perth Rouleurs do not have a beginners group. but if enough join the group at a similar level, they might be able to do something. just ask.

If you don't mind riding with recumbents, the WAHPV group usually meet at Burswood Cazino on Sundays at ~7.30am and ride where-ever (usually Freo). The pace is in your range, but we don't leave anyone behind - it's a social ride, with at least one coffee stop on the way to Freo and a long brekky stop in Freo.

Cheers,
Graeme

Toofat and others maybe we could throw a couple of dates around and see what numbers we can drum up....probably should take this thread out of general discussion and put it under WA (Graeme are you able to do this?) We could meet at the bridge....and the earlier the better for me

Thoughts??

Good ride this morning with 7 of us making the 7am start time. Good job we did as there was some massive paddle event starting under the narrows and also a fun walk so the place was packed by the time we where done.

49.16km all up according to my comp, with the extra loop down to Mt Henry bridge. Wind wasn't as bad as I was dreading coming back up the path on the home stretch.

Once again good to meet everyone, Durx has suggested another ride on Saturday the 25th before he flies out if anyone is keen. I'm not sure at this stage, but maybe we start to make another list as the week goes on.
