This thread is following on from what started off as the Slow Beach Rd Ride, but is now a more casual self-paced ride. On the weeks when we get at least one strong rider to lead, the pace of the main group is currently equivalent to BBC Black Rock ride pace (estimated 26+kph in good weather conditions), but might get faster as the group grows and/or we get fitter! Everyone is very welcome though, regardless of pace, and each week there will be somebody designated to stick with slower riders, so that no-one will be left riding alone Update
To date, it's stayed as ride at the pace of the slowest person: most people seem to be happy with that arrangement.
We are working on having a permanent starting time/location. A popular starting area is Port Melbourne, and we may end up with two groups, e.g. one starting at 7 AM and one at 9:30 AM. If neither of these suit you, post your preference in this thread, and we will see what suits the majority!
