December routes will be about 3-3.5 hrs, no official zones, a brisk and steady pace for EXPERIENCED and FIT cyclists (not for beginners or those regaining their fitness).
A Group each week; B Group (etc.) TBD, updated weekly.
January – February will include routes of 3.5-6 hrs with multiple open zones each ride. Routes will be posted each week prior to the ride.
Meet at 9:45, plan to ROLL at 10 am. I’ll try to post cancellations by 7 am Saturdays at the latest.
No fee, but we request you consider donations to globalbike:
If we secure a SAG, we’ll ask for tips also. [Anyone eager to SAG, email ME ONLY.]
Routes will have store stops, but all cyclists will be expected to be self-sufficient, to know the routes, and to be prepared to complete rides without the group if unable to keep up.
Question and suggestions welcomed, but email ME ONLY.
