Saturday 7th July 2018 - Etapa 2 (2 stages)

Post by Fran » Mon Jul 02, 2018 10:23 am

We are blessed, the weather looks fantastic for the whole week. Leading this Saturday, this is plan. Splitting the ride in 2 sections/stages:


Stage 1: Segment
Time to put all that winter miles into action, this our of first serious try to the popular 3 laps anticlockwise challenge to Richmond park as a GROUP. Last week we managed to get long stings over 40km/h, so this will be a piece of cake.
Please, 6am SHARP at Kingston Gate. It is a bit earlier but with a bit luck we will have no traffic. Ahead of us, 3 agonizing, brutal, extreme and very rapid laps (gosh! it does not sound very inviting), ideally each lap under 19m, the 3 laps under 57m. :mrgreen:


Stage 2: Standard Route
7:15am at the usual place for a relative flat and short route with only a couple of gentle hills, 67K 876m elevation. Here is the profile www.strava.com/routes/14105319. If no mechanic issues I hope we can get back no later that 10:15 .


The social event
After than my brother will prepare a nice finger food brunch with the usual tapas (croquetas/tortilla/etc) at my place under the pergola/ improvised mechanic garage.


Please let me know who is coming to Stage1/Stage2/Tapas by Friday.

DOH! As I thought, afraid I'm away this weekend Fran.

I'm not sure I'm too concerned about missing the 35km of painful TTT around the park followed by a further 67km of normal ride... but yet again I'm going to miss out on the Spanish tapas breakfast!

Enjoy the weather and good luck with the challenge (but since you've already done <57 minutes solo, surely you're just going to sit on the front and tow everyone round for an hour???).

Fran
For some crazy reason, I actually fancy the RP lap idea!

I can’t do the usual ride or the tapas unfortunately

See you at 6

Fran,

Thanks for leading ride.

I am not sure yet sorry, my wife and daughter are going out for day so I need to look after young son. If I can get out will only be for option B I am afraid, but even that is Challanging.

Assume not unless I confirm otherwise

Have fun

Tim

That is great Mark.
Stu is coming as well for stage1.
So far Stage 1, JohnDavid/Stu/MarkG/myself... what a shame that Nik can not make it.

Geoff is coming for stage2/brunch a well.

My brother skips stage1, in 2 o 3 weeks he should be ready.
