Bicycling WOW Rides - - Wow Rides -

This ride could be 50km or 200km; it could fin­ish back where it started, or when the last rider can’t go on any longer. It all de­pends on the whim of the group leader, and the strength of that last man. (If the last man quits but no-one is there to see it… did it re­ally hap­pen?)

It’s faster than your av­er­age group ride, and at­tracts the best riders, al­though any­one can rock up on the day; still, it’s gen­er­ally not a good idea if you don’t think you’ll have the strength to fol­low through. The ride is chal­leng­ing, but the bunch is fun.

GEES FAC­TOR

“Chal­leng­ing and fun, with lots of hu­mour. It’s a com­ing to­gether of great mates who have loads of years of rid­ing and fun times be­tween them. The guys are pretty se­ri­ous though, and the rides are gen­er­ally faster than a ‘club’ ride.

“But as we’re friends (or soon to be friends), there’s a lot of jok­ing around – the idea is to have fun, with guys who graft hard and just want to have a great ride ses­sion. With a laugh.” – Trevor Seinen, head of CVA
