New Ride (we’ll call it Korymat Road)


just chilling

Today Sherif, Sherif, Yasser and I completed a new 100km ride from Maadi to Helwan along the Autostrad then from there we took the Beni Suef toll road to god knows where. Could have been cut down to an 80km for anyone in a rush to get back. The first part of the ride on the Autostrad was decent with decent roads and moderate traffic which is even lighter on a Friday. there was nice climb once you pass Helwan. from there we headed to the toll road which was great, clean, smooth roads and little to no traffic. Good rest stop for water and snacks at the 38km mark. The road takes you really out into the middle of the desert with nothing around. You wanted to just keep riding and riding, but realize you must get back somehow. The way back was nice as well with a moderate headwind but definitely workable. Cverall a good option for an alternative Friday ride. Fantastic descent back into Helwan with a view of Sakara, Dashur and Bent pyramids.

Reminder: this Friday we will be doing the Fayoum ride for anyone interested, we have 6 riders so far and two cars. We will meet at 6:15 and leave at 6:30 at CAC. Let us know if you will be joining us.
