Thanks to Karen and Klayton for organizing, and for everyone who came out last night. We had a good time at my final Monday Social Ride and the picnic afterwards.
At least I started working on this on Thursday … I dug some old photos off my computer.
More photos coming soon!
It’s Wednesday, and so it’s time for another installment of the Wednesday Ride. There’s still a chance of more thunderstorms this evening, so use your best judgment when deciding whether or not to ride. I’ll plan on being present at the start no matter what. Otherwise, it’s the usual details for today.
We meet at 5:30 by the Flagpole, roll out at ~5:45, and if you’re running late let me know (before 5:20, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, otherwise my cell number is 480 734 fifty-five, thirty-five).
We’re still an intermediate-paced ride, structured as a series of sprints, averaging around 16 mph for 32 miles total (that will take 2 hours and change). We regroup at the end of each section to make sure no one gets lost or left behind, and there’s a stop at a gas station partway in to refuel (ha!). If you’re feeling frisky and reach regroup points fast, you can always add bonus miles by U-turning and doing additional laps. Why not?
Bring water (2 bottles recommended), strap on your helment, fire up your bike lights, check to make sure you’ve got a snack and your toolbag, and join us!
