According to best available forecasts, the cold snap looks to be easing by Sunday morning. There is no rainfall forecast for the Saturday night and temperatures look to be staying above 6 degrees across the night. Just in case this forecast changes, keep an eye on the club Facebook page for updates on the status of the club spin this Sunday.
Based on these assumptions and the stiff SSE’erly forecast, I’ll suggest the following routes which head south and then veer east towards Minane Bride. The shorter route comes in at around 69km while the longer route takes in a few more hills and brings the distance up to 80km.
For any members who might be interested in bike racing this season, make yerselves known to the group leaders at the start as there will be a subgroup working on bike racing specific drills every Sunday going forward.
Leaving City Hall @ 9am with route subject to change if conditions are worse than expected.
