Apologies for posting so late about this, I'm sure you're all on the edge of your saddles.
Although holidays will be getting in the way for some of us, this coming Friday is sub-24 Friday! This time last year, I had a lonely trip to Kaitalampi, but I'm hoping for some company this July.
One suggestion made last month was to write in more detail about the length of our rides, so here goes...
Possible destinations for this Friday's trip (approximate distances from Bemböle):
Pirttimäki - 10 kms / 1/2 hour
Luukki - 15 kms / 1 hour
Nuuksio - 17 kms / 1 1/2 hours
Porkkala - 40 kms / 4 hours (or 25 kms / 2 hours from Kirkkonummi railway station)
Use this journey planner to check the destinations.
I have been very generous with the timings, but I think it's quite accurate. Perhaps we are not riding at that pace all the time but with frequent stops and enjoyable rolling, we seem to be averaging 15 kms / hour. Or so. Maybe someone wants to comment?
I'll throw out another couple of ideas, while I'm at it. We have been talking about doing a night ride - enjoying the midnight sun and twilight. Actually it has already taken on a life of it's own and become The Hanko Dynamo (based loosly on The Dunwich Dynamo). Too far? Any other ideas? It supposed to be transcendental...
There has been an unusually great interest in swimming in the freezing Finnish lakes over the years. We all enjoy cycling. Some of us like running. Sub-24 triathlon, perhaps?
I'm fishing hard for comments...
Suffice to say, Friday 6th July, Bemböle Shell, shall we say 16:30?
See you then!
HUOM!: Friday 6th July, Bemböle Shell, 17:30, destination Nuuksio, 15 - 20kms, Frenchies encouraged...
