Something magical happens when daylight savings finally rolls around. It's like the weight of the long, cold winter is finally lifted and summer feels like it's just around the corner. Sure enough, it's slowly starting to warm up here in Melbourne and it's hard not to be excited about the opportunities for great riding in the months ahead.

One of the rides I'm most looking forward to is the Domestique 7 Peaks Ride at Lake Mountain on Sunday November 13. It's hard to believe that this is the fifth year that my good friend Andy and I have run these rides, but here we are!

For those that aren't familiar with Domestique, it's a collaboration between this site and the cycling collective that Andy heads up: Hells 500. Andy and I had been fans of the 7 Peaks Alpine Ascent Challenge (as it was called then - now 7 Peaks Ride) from the start and in 2012 we decided to organise some rides to coincide with the Challenge. Our goal: introduce people to the satisfaction of riding in the hills and help them to conquer the great mountains that our state of Victoria has to offer. It didn't matter whether you'd never climbed a mountain before or if you were a competitive local racer -- the ride was open to all, and free.

Four years on, those ideals haven't changed. Sure, the rides might look a little different than they once did -- doing 12 rides throughout the summer simply isn't feasible any more -- but the Domestique 7 Peaks rides are still free, they're still inclusive, and they're still a great day out, whether you're climbing Lake Mountain for the first time, trying to get yourself into some form ahead of the summer, or deep into your training for the upcoming Tour of Bright.

So get a bunch of mates together, or come by yourself. It really doesn't matter. With so many cyclists there you'll always find someone to ride with, and you'll always have a "carrot" up the road, spurring you on! One thing we can guarantee is that there'll be a friendly, welcoming atmosphere on the day and that you'll almost certainly have a great time. Even when it's been cold and wet up there in the past we've had fun! (Of course we'll be pulling as many strings as we can to ensure great weather this year ...)

2014 Lake Mountain Bunch

So what are you doing on Sunday November 13? We do hope you'll join us. The event starts at Gallipoli Park in Marysville at 9am with a quick rider briefing, after which we'll be sending you off in waves. Then it's just about settling in to a rhythm and climbing your way to the Lake Mountain resort at your own pace.

To register for the ride, click here (again, it's free). To stay up to date on the ride, head through to the Facebook event page. And to learn more about Domestique Cycling, head to the website.

And finally, if you're keen to see what the ride will be like, click the links below for reports and photos from the past four years:

Thanks for reading. We hope to see you in Marysville on Sunday November 13 as we kick-start 7 Peaks Ride season, and a great summer of cycling!

Ive got a a road bike with 2006 10 speed chorus groupset. The bike came with a 12-25 rear cassette (has a 50-34 compact crank and I suspect it has a short cage rear derailleur, not sure about this). To help me out doing the AAC200 a few years back I had a 12-27 cassette fitted.

For the real steeps of Hotham and Falls Creek my cadence is in the 50s, so I'd like to upsize to a 12-30 cassette to help a bit more.

Does anyone know if I will be able to just swap the cassettes over and adjust the rear derailleur? Will I need to add a link or two to the chain? Do I just need to bite the bullet and buy a longer rear derailleur

The internet literature on this topic is varied with some people saying it will work, others saying no way.

Anyone actually done this?

Great site, I find it enjoyable and useful

You will need the medium length Campagnolo rear derailleur to make this work. As such you will need to increase the length of your chain. I would suggest a new chain when you buy the new derailleur to match with the new cassette. When calculating the correct chain length just follow the literature that comes with the new parts and you will be fine.

So not wanting to fork out for a new derailleur or a chain..

I took a punt and ordered just the 12-30 cassette.

I swapped it over and it seems to fit without any adjustment whatsoever. :) Have ridden about 150km since the change including some tortuous 20+% sections with no problem, didnt even need to realign the derailleur! Stoked

So not wanting to fork out for a new derailleur or a chain..

I took a punt and ordered just the 12-30 cassette.

I swapped it over and it seems to fit without any adjustment whatsoever. :) Have ridden about 150km since the change including some tortuous 20+% sections with no problem, didnt even need to realign the derailleur! Stoked
