12/12 Saturday Ride

The Saturday ride is in limbo this week. Bron and I are considering participating in the reindeer ride, which now starts at 10:00, so we would need to head out at 8:00. However, the temperature and wind forecast is looking prohibitive for a 8:00 start (temps around 15 and winds around 20). Top it all off with icy road shoulders and it's not looking good.

If you are dead set on braving the cold and the wind or if you are interested in riding on Sunday instead, post a comment with your thoughts or drop me an email.

Reindeer/Santa Ride 12/12

Santa is looking for a few good reindeer! I was wondering if anyone would like to participate in a second annual Reindeer Ride on Sat, Dec 12th. I am thinking of meeting at BBB at 11:00 AM so we can don antlers and such and then we can ride around the Back Cove and into the Old Port and where ever our hearts desire! Please let me know if you are interested! I already have a few folks that have answered my discussion board post, but not nearly enough for a full team! I would also be happy to relinquish my "Santa" role for a reindeer (though I did put on some weight this year...). If anyone would like to possibly help out with a music source, that would also be great!



12/5 Saturday Ride (Updated)

We will meet at the shop at 9:00 tomorrow morning and head out up Mountain Rd. and over through Cumberland (MapMyRide route).


Is anyone interested in riding tomorrow morning?

Of the three comments responding to my post below, it appears that nobody is available.

If you are planning to ride, please post a comment so I can make a call as to whether there will be a ride. Thanks.

Saturday Ride

I have had a few conversations with folks about the fate of the Saturday ride now that winter is almost upon us. There seems to be interest in riding for as long as the roads are clear and there also seems to be support for shifting the ride to a "base-building" ride of approximately 1.5 - 2 hours at a relatively low intensity. Please post your comments or email me directly with your input on whether you would like the ride to continue as long as the weather permits and whether you would be interested in transitioning to more of a base building ride.

In addition to the format of the ride, we are also wondering about the start time. 8:00 is great because it keeps the ride from consuming the entire morning. However, it's a bit chilly at 8:00 these days, so if you have a preference for an 8:30 or even a 9:00 start, let us know.

This Saturday I am planning to leave from the shop at 8:00. It looks to be chilly but otherwise great for riding. Unless there are objections, I was thinking that we would follow one of the standard rides up Mountain Rd. and through Cumberland (MapMyRide route).
