THURSDAY NIGHT BEGINNERS SOCIAL RIDE!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: January 07, 2017, 08:26:46 AM »
Hi all how are we after the Christmas and New Year period?

I'm going to start a beginners social ride group much like the Tuesday night social rides but aimed at a slower pace and less of a bash session.
i will be at lysty ready for a 6pm start time on Thursdays.

The aim of this ride is to get like minded people of a beginner skill level together and have an enjoyable ride where we can help each other out and get better at what we love to do, thus we will ride to the pace of the slowest rider regardless of age or skill level. even if experienced riders just want to go for a slow relaxing peddle they are more than welcome.

This ride would be great for first timers or even people getting back into riding after injury or having a break for a while.
we will be sticking to lake track and some of the easier single trails and may if people are interested have a go at the skills park to work on our individual techniques.

Please note that this is not a sanctioned or organised LDTR event and riders ride at there own risk. (same as tuesday nights)

I will be at the top pf the Horswood rd car park near the information sign from this coming Thursday 12/01/2017 from around 5.30pm to set up my bike and meet people.

if you have any questions please feel free to email me (i think its on my profile here if not some one comment and ill put it up) or come find me at the above mentioned location i drive a 2016 Holden commodore wagon its prussian steel in color (green grey) and i ride a bright green trek i am also normally in a bright yellow top of some kind.

Regards Nick

I think Ross and I might try to come along to this when we can.
We usually try and get to the Tuesday night ride but sometimes that is not possible and sometimes it would be nice to do both.
Might also help make up some numbers till it becomes a "thing" in its own right.

I was keen on coming for a casual ride and a meet n greet but bike is going in for a service. If I can get it back I'll be sure to stop in.

Ross is schooling the Tuesday nighters, I dont think he needs to go to a beginner's ride ?!

Agreed Helen.
This ride I believe is focussing on the fire trails and minimal single track.
If Ross keeps it up he can run a Wednesday night "fast group".  :P

looking at doing lake circuit some if not most of lower buckle and if some people are up for it skills park or maybe another single or two depending on what people want to do on the night. if nothing else we can run 2 groups and just meet up at a few points around the park ( ross's rocket racing crew, can fly around the park and nick's no way am i as good as ross yet crew, bringing up a slower pace)

Keep pushing Nick.
If you continue to turn up it will grow.

Me again.

Perhaps get along to sunday beginners social ride and make yourself known and get whoever is running the ride to announce the Thursday group.
I think Sunday's riders are your target audience.

I am re-jigging work arrangements to come along. I can't do Tuesdays and Thursdays in the same week but should be able to alternate them :)
