September 7th and September 8th Rides

Saturday Group Ride LeaderWhat a great weekend of riding! 

The Saturday ride was really fun and we went down to Mellow Johnny’s via the scenic route and came back via shoal creek.  The ride was over 60 miles round trip and we had over 3,000 feet of climbing.  Andrew and Phil did the COTA ride at the race track.  According to Strava they had some great times.

The Sunday ride was fun as well and we went to Ski Shores and the morning was nice.  The ride was about 25 miles and we had a very nice ride.

NEXT WEEKENDS RIDES

AVERY RANCH ROUTE – Saturday September 7th at 7:30am at Cups & Cones

Since most of us doing the Tour de Cure on Sunday we will be doing a lighter version of the ride.  So there will be the standard fast group but there will also be slower group that will be going shorter distances.  We will ride between 45 – 55 miles depending on the route and group you choose to ride with.  We will roll out of Cups & Cones at 7:30 am morning and we will head out to AVERY RANCH. 

The ride is going to be flat.  While we do our best to keep the group together you will need to have a certain level of riding experience and conditioning to stay with the main group or else you may get left behind.  There is no designated sweeper for our Saturday rides but again this Saturday we will have two groups so there should be a pace for most riders.

Below is the route we will take on Saturday.
