Last week we had fun with hills. This week lets go longer and flatter on a slightly different route to Liberty Hill and back via Round Mountain (https://www.strava.com/routes/4120994). It is about 67 miles and I eliminated a few hundred feet by skipping Kauffman, but it is still around 2800 ft. The weather is looking really good! Stick around after the ride for some discounted burgers and beer from Lakeside Pizza & Grill.
Sunday is our usual Coffee Shop ride to Red Horn. It is 50 miles and is at a more relaxed social pace than our Saturday rides, but we typically finish with a 17mph average speed overall. While we make great efforts to keep the group together, this is NOT a no drop ride. If you cannot hang with the group after repeated regrouping, you may get dropped. Red Horn is 18 miles away and is where we stop for coffee, breakfast tacos, pastries, and socializing before finishing the rest of the ride.
Both rides leave from Cups & Cones at 8:30 am. Come early and grab some coffee and donuts!
