Every Tuesday evening from mid-spring through the summer and into the fall the “Take No Prisoners” ride is ON. The TNP is a hard ride done at a racing intensity and in an aggressive racing style with attacks, surges, bridges, chase downs, etc. Very few riders in the area can say they’ve never been dropped on the TNP. The group rolls easily out of the Shell station (the “Shellron”) at the northeast corner of Harvey and the northbound Hwy 6 feeder road and heads up Harvey at 5:30 p.m. After crossing Hwy 30 onto Elmo Weedon the pace remains moderate until the left turn at Grassbur, where it begins to heat up; the first lap is usually ridden hard but steady with the stronger riders rotating at the front. Right turn after three miles or so on Riley to 1179. Right on 1179; right on to 2038; right on Cobb back onto Grassbur where the Grassbur-Riley-1179-2038-Cobb loop is repeated — once until there is enough light (usually mid-spring) then twice until there is no longer enough (usually early fall). If you get dropped and there is at least one lap to go, turn around and ride the loop backwards until you meet up with the group (or, more likely at the TNP, the subgroup of your choice) coming in the other direction; hop on and give it another go. On the final time around the loop, the ride goes left on Grassbur at the end of Cobb and heads back to Elmo Weedon, where there is a sprint to the last mailbox on the right, just before the stop sign. After a regroup, the pace gradually heats up yet again on Elmo Weedon and the ride finishes with an uphill sprint to the far end of the driveway for Central Baptist Megachurch at the top of the rise before Hwy 30. Heavy rains prior to the ride can flood the low-lying road before Grassbur; in this case, the alternative route listed above is used.
