Important notes:

  • you are responsible for your own safety; some instructions will be provided before departure at the meeting point,
  • the speed of the group is equal to the speed of the slowest member of the group,
  • there’s no such thing as bad weather; so the event will be postponed only if the weather is hazardous,
  • the area near Villa Romaine is not suitable for road bikes as it is on a track/roman road; but since it’s the area we’re going to visit, it can be pushed,
  • some segments are on the road (CR between Olm and Goeblange, and unclassified road to Nospelt) where traffic is usually low,

Registration is not mandatory, but please R.S.V.P. to our Facebook or Meetup event if you can; this will help us figure how many people to expect.
