    The Sunday Ettalong Ride

    We are riding to Ett-a-long so come-a-long. A picturesque stroll (or sufferfest) up the Old Pacific Highway through Kariong, Patonga and hence forth to Ettalong. This a favorite Sunday ride in the warmer months as we take in the coastal scenery. Take care along the road from the ferry at Palm Beach to Bilgola. From the beach to the bush we traverse up McCarr’s Creek Rd then back to the suburbs. Coffee at Turramurra awaits!

    Riders briefing at 6.55am for the A's then ride starts at 7.00am sharp at the Turramurra Cyclery car park.

    Groups
    There are 2 groups:

    A – average speed >33kmph

    B – average speed 28-30kmph



    Choose your group wisely...
    The A group waits only for the last person to get to the top of the climbs then they are off again, in other words no time for a coffee!

    The B group is a tempo ride that will wait at the top of the climbs and allow the last person to get their breath back before continuing on again.

    So for the A group you need to be fit and be prepared to go fast! The B group is a little more forgiving and give you a break!

    What to Bring
    Bring a spare tube, tyre levers and a CO2 cannister. Also you can bring some food and water, just in case you run out of steam, and that's not pleasant!

    Parking
    If you are driving, please park in the IGA car park, towards the loading dock.

    Bad Weather
    If it's raining make your own call. Most riders don't come but it's not officially cancelled. You do ride at your own risk if weather conditions are adverse. Have a coffee in Bar Stelvio instead!

    Insurance
    If you are not a member of Peloton Sports Inc. (or another Cycling Australia affiliated club) and would like to participate in this ride then you will need to join our club. Joining the club can be done at Turramurra Cyclery or online via the Cycling Australia website, please use the following link http://www.cycling.org.au/. The cost will vary depending on your age and your racing ambitions.

    Please note: cycling is a dangerous sport and can result in serious injury or even death, if you don’t currently have a Cycling Australia license you are uninsured and you are riding at your OWN RISK. You will be responsible for your own losses and any damage that you might cause.

    And some encouragement…

    Here at Peloton Sports we endeavor to be an inclusive group and to keep the pace sustainable for most peloton members. However bunch riding is inherently quick, hence the appeal. If you find yourself unable to keep up, or getting “dropped”, please don’t be disheartened! It has happened to us all!

    Keep coming back, keep trying to hold on to a wheel with the goal to improve your fitness and be part of the crew. This is indicative of the pace/standard that has been in the bunch for years. If you are getting popped off the back, look at this as a goal to aspire to. Every week you will probably find yourself inching forward and getting better.
