Daily Distance and Elevation

Indicative Summary

D.

Occassional Rider

Average kms: 25-45 kilometres

Average Elevation: 100-350 m

I’m content not to wear lycra, cleats (clip in shoes) are a novelty! Riding 30 kms a day is adequate. I intend to stop en route and take in the scenery and sample the coffee.

C.

Weekend Rider

Average kms: 25-50 kilometres

Average Elevation: 300-500 m

I can comfortably ride 30-50km each day but I would still like to enjoy the surroundings while I ride. Rest, recovery and re-fuelling should also be a highlight of my day.

B.

Robust Rider

Average kms: 50-100 kilometres

Average Elevation: 450-750 m

Riding at least 50-100 kms is an accomplishment. Active sightseeing from the saddle is preferable.

A.

Avid Rider

Average kms: 250-350 kms/week

Average Elevation: 1000-2,300 m, in excess of 1 hour of ascending

Spending hours on my bike is a pleasure and I can ride over 100km each day. I prefer to be in a group of riders that have a brisk average of anywhere between 29 kph and 33 kph and would like to challenge myself on some major ascents.
