Even if spring feelings are still difficult at the current temperatures, one cannot deny that a new cycling season is just around the corner. The clocks may be going back to daylight saving time for the last time, which is why we are starting the new series of events on March 28 with fresh impetus. No longer under the charming title "Rookies, Chillah, Tempokillah" but simply titled "Wednesday at 6". The reason for this is the development of the group, which has been coming together for three years in some places and where it would be fraudulent if we didn't finally nibble off the rookies signet. This does not contradict the fact that the MI6 round, as it is called internally, is still a relaxed after-work event on wheels, or “social ride” in German. And therefore still well suited to familiarize yourself with racing bike rides in a group. Maybe not the perfect start for the absolute beginner, but if you can complete 50 kilometers on the road bike alone without any problems, you should be able to get started in spring wonderfully. And those who attend regularly will also make their progress in the group with a smile on their faces over the course of the season.
We start with flat 60-70 kilometers in March, but will also like to include an easy hill tour or longer tour on the long evenings in the middle of the season. Flexible, as the season and the framework conditions offer. The events are announced via Facebook as well as via Strava, if you avoid both, you can also just stand here “Wednesday at 6”. And after the tours you just sit down together with a beer in or in front of your hat.

We are currently also planning a small event for complete novice road bike riders, more on that soon. If you are interested, talk to us in store.
We would like to thank the companies once again who support us with their commitment during our trips. It's nice to work together with conviction and passion and to see that brick-and-mortar retail is important to you:
Another piece of information: the second edition of the cyclingworld held in Dusseldorf. More on that soon. But we would like to draw attention to our two trips as part of the fair: Saturday we get on the racer, on Sunday on the gravel machine aka Gravelbike:
On both trips you have the opportunity to ride test bikes from Ritchey and others free of charge via listnride, you can let Wahoo's Elemnt or Bolt convince you, and test a Lake shoe on the Saturday trip. More details here in the next few days.
We are looking forward to a new exciting season in Düsseldorf and the surrounding area. In year 1 after the Grand Départ. With many chic tours and with you.
