About the Event
This ride is a ride on one of the best trails near Geneva, the legendary Frankenstein. The plan is to do about two laps (perhaps 3 if we use the post bus for the shuttle) and finish in the early afternoon. If you are keen on only one loop it also works perfectly fine.
Most likely we will go in at least one car so a shuttle including bikes is available.
The number of places in the car is limited so contact the organiser asap to reserve your place (regular fuel contribution per trip consumption) and if you come with a car and have spare places you are willing to offer to riders with bikes please let the organisers know.
Please make sure you have a complete change of clothes (clean shoes, shorts and a T-shirt) for the car after riding. That is essential if you forget, be prepared to travel in the boot, wearing a bin bag ;P .
If you drive to the meeting point with your car and have free spaces in your car for other riders, please let us know 🙏
If you can’t ride/drive to the meeting point, contact us, as we will try to arrange a place for you in the TC shuttle or you might be able to join in another rider's car!
