September 18 Monday Night Level 2/3 Ride

Allan will lead the Monday Night Level 2/3 Ride this week. A new configuration he’s dreamed up and dubbed the Abend Abbattis.

I’m sure there’s a (military) story behind which he’ll share in one of his (lengthy) prologues or along the way. As always there will be breaks and no one will be dropped. Please bring your lights- they keep you safe and we’ve received positive feedback on them from pedestrians recently.

Start location: Wilmot Street
Time: 5:45 prompt
Route: “L2/3 APD – Abend Abbattis” Route map here
Description: Gentle climb up to Baltimore, continuing up Harwood Rd to Minifie Rd. West a bit and then a glorious down hill back to Dale Rd and home via Baltimore once again just in time “for tea and medals”!

Total distance 37 kms so we need to start prompt or even early. Bring your lights (and cash for your NHCC AGM tickets).


  1. I’m a level 2 and would like try the Monday night ride – should I maybe wait until next year? Nervous about making the jump up.

  2. Audrey,
    I must be honest. The Monday evening ride group is now more L3 than L2. We’ve been doing some quite challenging hills to boot. This route, at 37kms, means that we’ll have to keep going to get back in daylight. So not wanting to dampen your enthusiasm but this may not be the ride to start with. If you do decide to give it a go then of course we’ll ensure that your not left on your own. Allan

      • Hi Audrey,

        If you’re dissuaded from tonight’s ride I am happy to report that Wednesday night’s Level 3 route is pretty flat.

        It’s part of the route you did for Bike Up except we go through Grafton on the way back.

        Take a look and hopefully we will see you on Wednesday.
