The Spring Classics motivate us to ride more!
The Spring Classics in Europe are well and truly upon us. The first cobbled races of 2023 are now finished, and all eyes are looking forward to the Monuments of the Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix.
The Spring Classics bring us one of the most exciting periods of racing of the entire cycling year.
And there is nothing better than riding with friends telling tales of adventure and rerouting the great moments of races overnight.
We have some special MC Velo long rides this week in addition to our normal weekly schedule.
If you are interested in these rides and the value of MC Velo membership, please get in contact with us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are riding the next Longest Day this coming Friday. Clocks change at the beginning of April so this is a last day before we lose the late sunset (which hopefully we don't need). The last time we ventured here was November 2020 (with tales to tell read about our last adventure here).
RSVP in MC TeamApp is essential for this ride.
