    The Maraylya (Massacre) Sunday Ride

    The choicest words to describe this regular ride are shorter, sharper and even more painful! Maraylya takes us to the cold crevice known as Cattai Ridge. Get your compact crank sets and your 28 cog ready, this is a pinch! Fear not, we regroup for the journey back towards Galston for a final climb. The closure of the sufferfest is marked with a coffee and a good dose of ride nostalgia with friends.

    Distance:  81.4km

    Start Time

    Riders briefing at 6.55am for all group, then ride starts at 7.00am sharp in the Turramurra Cyclery car park.

    Groups
    There are 2 groups: Numbers Depending

    A – average speed >33kmph 81.4km

    B – average speed 28-30kmph 78.2km

    - Both groups roll out together from the bike shop to the top of Galston Gorge at a moderate pace.

    - The B group ridemaster stays at the rear of the Peloton to make sure everyone stays in the peloton.

    - This is a great opportunity for everyone to meet someone new in a different group.

    - It is also a great way to learn from the A group on how a Peloton should work.

    - The Peloton is split into a A and B groups whilst regrouping at the top of the Galston West climb.

    - A good brew is an important part of our Peloton culture and is at Bar Stelvio at the finish of the ride.

    Choose your group wisely...
    The A group waits only for the last person to get to the top of the Galston Climb then they are off again, a pace line normanly forms past Kenthurst and from there you are on your own if you get dropped.

    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 an endurance ride that will wait at the top of the climbs and allow everyone to get their breath back before continuing on again. 

    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.
