THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY...
Relaxed pace, small streets and farm tracks. Dropable only!
Calling Düsseldorf an Eldorado for racing cyclists is perhaps a bit too ambitious, but our hometown can boast of being able to offer a varied surrounding area for sporty tours of all kinds. An advantage compared to real big cities is the relatively short way out of the city, within 15 minutes you almost always have the worst behind you. While in the east in the direction of Ratingen countless small climbs are reminiscent of Flanders, the west to the left of the Rhine can trump with almost endless expanse, countless flat and little-used farm roads.
These flat expanses are the territory we like to use on the hat's weekly social rides. The reason for this is that the performance differences in the peloton are not as noticeable as in hill laps, nobody has to feel left behind. For the longer laps, we like to visit the Vollratherhöhe, popularly known as the Halde, which is a useful substitute for a hill in the flat area.
The length of our trips varies with the available daylight hours, 60km early and late in the season, 80km + on the really long days. The average pace is 25-26km/h, which means that the peloton rolls along at 30km/h on the flat in a straight line. Don't worry, it works wonderfully in a group. A tip for beginners: if you are safe and familiar with your bike, go to the 2nd or 3rd row. It's always relatively relaxed at the front, but at the back you always have to close gaps with a larger peloton, which are caused by the accordion effect.
We try to include a small sporting challenge for everyone in every tour, a small final sprint or something similar fits wonderfully, after that you wait for each other and
roll on together.
GOOD TIME TUESDAY - WEEKLY WOMEN'S RIDE
There are many reasons women ride road bikes.
There are many reasons why women ride bikes with women.
And there are many reasons why women sometimes only ride road bikes with women.
We want to give you one more good reason: Good Time Tuesday.
With Good Time Tuesday we share our love of cycling, inspire each other, grow together and most of all have a pretty good time.
We welcome women of all skill levels, ages and experience. Our weekly after-work group has one big goal: we want to have a good time on the bike with you, laugh and support each other.

Important: Nobody gets on a bus on a guided tour in a figurative sense. Here the two at the top do not determine the tour, but everyone who is there has a responsibility. Please always be aware of this. When chatting, pay attention to the people in front and their hand signals, drive so calmly and evenly that everyone likes to drive behind you. Don't leave big gaps between the rows because you never know if those behind you can close them again. If we all act like this all the time, then we all have a lot of fun.
If you're flinching now: we're actually nice and relaxed, but there have to be rules. We want all participants to have fun, which also means that everyone arrives home safe and sound.
After the tour, everyone who wants to roll together again in the courtyard of the cap, where we can end the tour with music and a drink. With our new neighbors from Bulle Burger next door, a snack shouldn't be a problem either.
We offer you two different tickets, the donation ticket from € 1,- for the World Bicycle Relief or a free ticket for all those who cannot or do not want to donate.
We look forward to the start of the summer season with you and hope that, like in the last few years, there will be a great, open and international peloton that enjoys the tours together and welcomes newcomers.
