The Sunday Road Bike Spin

The beauty of a Sunday morning in Lanzarote is that you are guaranteed the weather! You don’t have to wait up ’til late for a club up-date on the weather…..we’re going and we’re going every Sunday from now on!
What’s the spin like? It’s just like the Sportives of old, where everybody is relaxed, enjoying their bike, revelling in good company and exchanging stories and life’s experiences.
Speed? 22-27kmph depending on the group. It’s a sportif pace, we stick together as a group for most of the spin. For the climb of the day, Tabayesco, stronger riders have a licence to tear up the climb. Such is the atmosphere, stronger riders very often come back down to join the grupetto and then we regroup at the top.
