Racing the sun along the DVP: Downtown to Edwards Garden & back (approx. 30 KM)

- Mostly flat, a few medium hills, a few but short sand and gravel spots

- Distance (total): Approximately 30 KM

3. Ride requirements:

- Average speed: 20-25 KM /h (good pace to fast pace)

- Break(s): We will take a 10-15 min break once we reach the mid-point location before riding back

- Bike type: Any (I will ride a road bike)

4. Additional notes:

- This ride is weather permitting;

- Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring water (important to hydrate) and if needed snacks;

- Please be on time and respect your RSVP; We intend to leave on time;

- No guest allowed; Your friend needs to sign up for the Meetup to participate;

- By taking part in this event you attest: a) you are in good health, b) you participate at your own risks, and c) you release the organizer(s) from any responsibility;

P.S. I intend to do other variations of this ride and to ride on other paths when I have enough time to plan and test the rides. Suggestions would be welcomed.

    Good ride with fast riders; excellent exercise; days are getting shorter so speed need to increase I guess ;)

    I'm changing my attendance to 'no', because I likely will not be able to make it. Sorry for the last minute change.

    I am happy that the list of attendees increased yesterday... (possibly because of yesterday's rain and today's favorable forecast); This will potentially be my last organized event for a while as September is generally a busier month at work.
