Monday ride 3:05pm from Springs

At our coffee stop at Lix last Monday it was agreed by all 11 at the table that the start time for our Monday afternoon ride should change to a 3:05pm start from the Springs and 5 minutes earlier (3:00pm) at Point Lonsdale shops.

This timing takes account of the end of Daylight Savings this coming Sunday, April 6th. Remember to put your clocks BACK one hour.

Monday ride 3:45pm from Springs

At our coffee stop at Lix this afternoon it was agreed by all 12 at the table that the start time for our Monday afternoon ride should change to a 3:45pm start from the Springs and 5 minutes earlier (3:40pm) at Point Lonsdale shops.

This timing fits in with Lix current closing time of 5pm and allows us to have a coffee and chat without being chased out by Ann and Rob.

Monday ride starts THREE PM for now..

Summer is upon us YET AGAAAAIN (tsk!) so we could almost leave and return a little later - however we would then arrive slightly too late at Lix for chat.

Therefore our ride on Monday still starts at 3:00pm and returns 4:30 - 5:00pm, until further notice. This is reflected in the list of regular rides.

Beware The Dark - Monday ride 3pm

There were thirteen pedalpushers at coffee on Monday.

It was agreed that as Daylight Savings finished, the start time of the Monday afternoon ride should move back to 3pm. If left at 4pm some riders may soon be riding home in the dark.

Cheers,
- Ewan

PS. On the topic of cyclist visibility: see the study below, comparing expectations against reality.
Study in 2012 by Wood et al at Queensland University of Technology
The third chart shows Estimated vs Actual, with ways to increase the distance at which we're noticed by drivers. It's the right time of year for us to make these improvements.

Roll on 2013.......Wooohoooo.

Cheers Ewan

Monday ride reverts to 4pm

Monday ride to 3pm for Winter

Most of the regular riders felt it was now getting too dark and cold for the 4pm start, which had been finishing 5:30 - 6:00pm depending on the talk over coffee at Lix!

They've agreed that 3:00pm would be a much better start time over winter, to finish 4:30 - 5:00pm with lots of daylight around.

The new 3pm start-time is now reflected in the list of regular rides.
