LIVESTRONG CHALLENGE – Sunday October 19th
For those that have done this ride in the past it is a great ride for a great cause. There is free swag, food, beer and music. The cycling route is great too. There are a bunch of distances too ranging from 20, 40, 65 and 100 mile distances. You can learn more about the ride at http://www.livestrong.org/events/1700/ and as mentioned above Susan Carlo has 18 free tickets and you can reach her at email@example.com
It really a great ride and it is well supported and a lot of fun.
COFFEE SHOP RIDES – Sunday October 19th at 7:30am at Cups & Cones
Join us this Sunday for the SRC Coffee Shop Ride! This is for those wanting to explore options outside of Steiner Ranch or those wanting a nice social/recovery ride.
The group will leave C&C at 7:30 like the other Sunday ride groups, but will target some not-too-far coffee shop for some espresso, biscotti, and socialization. The ride will average around 15-17 mph and should be perfect for those looking for a recovery ride or to extend their range out of Steiner. Each week we will pick a different destination, but they would typically be around 15 miles from C&C. This is a no-drop ride, but you should be able to ride 30-40 miles at a 15-17 mph pace.
BABES (and BROS) on BIKES / RECOVERY RIDE – Sunday October 19th at 8:30am at Cups & Cones
Come join us for the Sunday social Babes (and Bros) on Bikes / Recovery Ride. This user-friendly ride is intended for beginners looking to gain some experience and/or riders wanting a later start or easy Sunday cruise. Riders meet at Cups & Cones for ‘wheels down’ at 8:30am. This is a ‘no drop’ ride, meaning the group stays together, within the neighborhoods of Steiner Ranch. The route and pace is customized to the level of riders who show up. In general, you can expect a mostly flat course, about 1 hour long varying from 10-20 miles. There will be optional hill climbs for those wanting an extra challenge, and to help beginners set riding goals. You will learn the basics of bicycle safety, riding technique, equipment recommendations, but mostly, you will meet new friends and have FUN! All are welcome! Hope to see you there!
