Hendry Shop Rides

FIRE STATION RIDE



When:Sunday 8am (return 9.45 apprx)
Where:Fire Station at cnr Grubb Road (few minutes from Town centre)
Who:First Time bunch rider to competitive riders
Distance:55km

This is a fun ride that is quick in places. The bunch will saunter down toward Queenscliff then quickly winds up into the lead-out and the sprint over the railway lines toward the Queenscliff Road. [The group may splinter here]. After the sprint, sometimes provides and opportunity for the entire group to back together, other times, the hammer drops and the pace stays high into Queenscliff Marina. Then it’s time for a coffee and chat at the Ferry Station – it is Sunday morning after all.
Back on the bike and the speed quickly returns to ‘caffeine Olympics’ pace through Point Lonsdale and back up the false flat toward Ocean Grove. A little rise represents an opportunity for a break -away into town, then along the beach and a back road or two returns back to the Fire Station.[RIDE SAFELY!]

SUNDAY BUNCH


Where:Car park across from the shop (Coles Car park)
Who:Bunch riding experience to competitive riders
Distance:60km

For countless years experienced bunch riders (and those wishing to ride safely and have a go) have gathered in the car park outside the store to head to Torquay.
Depending on the season, more intimate groups in winter and swelling bunches over summer cruise through Barwon Heads and 13th Beach Road at approx 30-35kph. Depending on the prevailing wind the group is typically two abreast, rolling though. At some point on the return trip from picturesque Torquay the pace winds up over 45kph and is maintained with strong rolling turns. The speed winds up again after the turn on to 13th Beach Road and with aleft hand lane onlysprint to the ‘Cadel’ line. [RIDE SAFELY!] Coffee afterward on the Terrace at ‘Foam’. Most mornings per week we have rides, ask instore for current timings.
