Welcome Back! It has been a few weekends since I have sent out an email. I am eager to get back to riding with you guys and getting back to the normal weekly grind. My SoCal visit was great and if I get that second home in San Diego I’ll be sure the doors are open to any of you that would like to go and have a place to stay.
As many of you know Steve Cummings is taking orders for new kits so make sure you reach out to him if you are looking for a kit. Also, Thomas Lea has received the bibs from Descente for those of you that requested a replacement.
Tour De Cure Please make sure you join our Tour de Cure team which we do every year and it has been tons of fun. Cycling, Food and Beer and all for a great cause: http://main.diabetes.org/goto/TeamBeef
NEXT WEEKENDS RIDES
TEXAS BEEF COUNCIL or CUPS & CONES RIDES – Saturday August 16th at 7:30am at Cups & Cones
You have two options for this Saturday and I’m sure many more.
Come join us for the annual Tour de Cure / Texas Beef Council sponsored bike ride. I’ll be riding up to Rudy’s on 620 and there will be free breakfast tacos before the ride and then free lunch afterwards. Please meet up at Rudy’s at 7am for BK and wheels down at 8am. We should have a good size group for a 50 miler. If you have not signed up for the Tour de Cure yet please show up for this fun ride and you can sign up at the event with no registration fee. I hope to see you all up there.
If you are not interested in riding in the Tour de Cure this year but still feel like riding please meet at Cups & Cones at 7:30am.
COFFEE SHOP RIDE – Sunday August 17th at 7:30am at Cups & Cones
Starting this Sunday we introduce a new ride option: Coffee Shop Ride! Those wanting to explore options outside of Steiner Ranch, or those wanting a nice recovery ride option should consider joining the Sunday Coffee Shop Ride Group.
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 14-15 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 14-15 mph pace.
