New news on our Saturday ride options. There will be two group ride levels leaving at different times (from Cups & Cones) – Faster Pace and Endurance Pace. As outlined on our website, we try to accommodate various levels of rider interest and recently there are folks seeking a more moderate paced and less total miles on Saturdays. We hope that this attract area riders who want to learn group riding at a moderate pace.
• Faster Pace 7:00am ride heads out to hit the east side for our Pfluggy loop 66 mile route (target 17-19 speed) https://www.strava.com/routes/3955052
• New Endurance Pace Group leaves at 8:00am headed on an out and back to the Arboretum. The ride should be about 36 miles with an overall average pace of 15 -16 mph which means there may be times when we are going faster on the flats or downhills and slower on the climbs. (best attempt for a no drop ride) https://www.strava.com/activities/1392024266
After the ride, we meet up at Lakeside for some discounted breakfast tacos, burgers and beer!
Sunday is our usual Coffee Shop ride to Red Horn. It is 50 miles and is at an endurance pace typically finishing around a 17mph average speed. While we make great efforts to keep the group together, with a few re-group points, this is NOT a no drop ride. Red Horn is 20 miles away and is where we stop for coffee, breakfast tacos, pastries, and socializing before finishing the rest of the ride.

Hopefully, the weather holds out in the mornings…please check for updates.
