Looking for some inspiration for your winter training?
A few of us are heading to a screening of Le Ride at the Cineplex on Thursday, November 9.
If you're interested in joining, RSVP here by October 25.
Le Ride is about the first English speaking team to ride, in what many believe is the toughest sporting event on earth, The Tour de France. In 1928 a small under-resourced and untested team from New Zealand and Australia lined up in Paris next to Europe’s best riders. Racing as a team of 4 against teams of 10, many considered the Australasian’s entry a joke, with one French journalist calling it “nothing short of murder”. 168 riders started the more than 3,500 mile race that year … only 41 finished! Well known television personality Phil Keoghan decided to bring this remarkable story back to life, retracing the exact route while sticking to the same schedule … 150 miles a day, completely circumnavigating France while riding an original 1928 steel bicycle with no gears, marginal brakes and weighing twice as much as a modern racing bike.
