TOUR DE CURE IS HERE! For those participating in the ride we look forward to seeing you at the dinner at the Oasis at 6pm on Thursday September 11, 2014. The meal is sponsored by Texas Beef Council for all Team Beef Riders. Guests are welcomed for $20 which can be paid for at the door.
While this is not a race it is fun to note that Team Beef / SRC riders came in 2nd place for the 100 miler! What will happen this year?
Tour de Cure – Saturday September 13th at Reunion Ranch. 100 Miler roles out at 7am.
This Saturday most people will be participating in the Tour de Cure ride. There will be plenty of food and drink after the ride. The ride will be fully supported as well and we are expecting cooler weather this weekend which will be nice.
Next time you see Thomas Lea congratulate him for being the top fund raiser on Team Beef which has 67 riders. Other SRC riders that made the TOP 10 include John Nadolski, Robert Brown and Bill Foster. The Team raised $21,032 this year for the American Diabetes Association and finding a cure for Type I diabetes and educating those with Type II on how to manage or even cure their condition.
For those that are not riding I’m sure if you show up at C&C at 7:30am there will be some people there that will do a local ride.
COFFEE SHOP RIDE – Sunday September 14th 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 September 14th 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!
