There is no official bike parking at this venue however in nice weather we sit overlooking the bikes. BYO bike lock if you're worried about leaving your pride and joy out of sight.
Because I'm frequently too lazy to leave home at 5:15am to get to the MRR, I propose a leisurely ride around Ringwood.
I'm thinking Mondays and Fridays at 6am at this stage, meeting at the Ringwood clock tower.
The initial route is http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Ringwood-Road-Ride but is completely flexible as I'm not 100% sure about road quality or traffic levels.
27 km, nothing very hilly, should be doable in an hour (27 km/hr). Does anyone know a suitable cafe in the Ringwood area that'll be open by 7?
Who's up for a go this Monday, April 21?
