Ride Report - Sat. June 15, 2019 - Local Ride - By Frances
A different perspective...
Meir led 22 of us on a lovely ride today - just to confuse our little grey cells, we whizzed along a lot of familiar routes backwards. Woven into our ride were some lovely new bits, the best being the route around the lake in Udim.
We covered 30 km in just under 2 1/2 hours - the first part on our way northwards towards Yakum was a test for just how well we could navigate the sand -particularly around Har Hazevel. Later on we had some steep singles (a test for our technical abilities) and some lovely views.
We made our way back via Bne Tzion and encountered a few die-hards still training in the loop there, but our focus was... yes, coffee! Thanks to Meir!
Soooo let's sing along to the Beatles (with some poetic licence)
It's been a hard day's ride, and we've been slogging through the sand
it's been a hard day's ride, And our muscles are feeling sa-a-ad
but when we get back to you and drink the coffee so good
We will feel alright
