    The number of members are up by 27 as compared to last week. The week saw everyone collectively ride more, with total distance, elevation gained and time spent on the saddle were all up. More than last week, but still lower than normal level. Excepted, considering the lockdown and pandemic raging across the country.

    There were 3 who rode more than 100 a day!

    31 riders rode at least a century!

    12 who averaged above 30 kmph for the week. 10 climbed more than 4000 metres… Incredible riding by everyone.

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