Another evening ride...bring your lights! 25-30K steep city riding

Hi All,

Another evening ride, where we will be riding some of the many short but steep climbs in the neighborhoods straddling ronda de Dalt. It will look something like this: http://app.strava.com/activities/37828680

We will meet on Plaza Molina at 7PM. It will be dark and even though most of the streets have street lights, do bring your lights so you can be seen.

Come and join the fun!

Cheers,

Michel

    Hi there! I just joined this group and would love to get out for a ride as soon as possible but I have some concerns! I am living here temporarily so I am currently riding a bike I found on loquo.com...road bike from the 90's or so. Not sure how much climbing it can handle/if it is in good enough shape for long rides. I also don't have equipment like clip in pedals, shoes, handpump, extra tubes, etc. Do you think I can still participate in any of your rides?

      sounds like a good plan, thanks! i rode cross-country in the US a few months ago so i have some experience, but it is the second-hand bike i am more worried about. tibidabo sounds like a good place to test run it with lots of climbing... thanks for the advice and hopefully i can join you all soon!

      I'm by no means an expert but a bike from the 90s often have 39 cogs small ring on the front gear and 23 on the back. Many of us mere mortals would struggle with that combination over this route! I concur with Michel. Take a nice relaxed ride up to Carretera de las aguas or Tibidabo and see what the bike feels like before going on this route.
