    Club Stats. 901 members collectively rode 56634 km in 1639 rides, climbing 291108 metres in 2592 hours!

    The number of members are up by 23 as compared to last week. The week saw everyone collectively ride more or less the same with total distance, elevation gained and time spent on the saddle were all unchanged. An achievement considering the lockdowns around the country due to the pandemic.

    To be in the top 100, you needed to ride minimum 194 km during the week!

    There were 5 who rode more than 100 a day!

    5 who rode at least a double century. 56 riders rode at least a century!

    9 averaged above 30 kmph for the week. 5 climbed more than 4000 metres… Incredible riding by everyone.

    Kudos to all the riders who have been working hard on their saddles…
