Melbourne Brompton Club Monthly Ride – 28 August 2016

In preparation for our upcoming 50km Around The Bay ride, this month we’ve planned a longer ride – back to the Brighton Bathing Boxes!

We fit comfortably along the front porch of Box No 8 - Brighton Beach Bathing Boxes

Meeting Point: Federation Square
Meeting Time: 9:30am
Destination: Brighton Bathing Boxes, west end of Dendy Street, Brighton East
Estimated Distance: 33km
Essential items: Food and drink

As this is a training ride there won’t be frequent stops for group photos (yes, I will survive!) and we will be trying to lift our average pace a little.

While we won’t leave any stragglers behind, if you don’t feel up to the return trip due either to unfavourable weather conditions (it can get windy around the bay) or tiredness, there are two train stations near to our turn around point – Middle Brighton and Brighton Beach stations.

We are not planning to stop for breaks on the way there or back, so you would be advised to bring enough drink and a snack (fruit, muslie bar) to munch on when we have a quick rest stop at Brighton Beach.

Don’t be afraid to join in. We have not turned into a “finish first or die trying” group. We are still about having a good day out, but at the same time want to lift the average pace and finish in a reasonable time.

Don’t hesitate to contact me by leaving a comment below (doesn’t have to be public – just say so and I won’t publish it) or join the conversation on our Facebook page.
