7/28 Saturday Ride

It turns out that I will be in town tomorrow, so you can all stop panicking about leading officially and just come out and ride (leading functionally).

Ok, so the weatherman is most definitely not in our corner right now. Let's just say, for the sake of argument, that it's *not* going to rain tomorrow. Assuming the cycling gods are with us, I thought we'd do something a little different and take a path to the west: Babbage/Highland Rte.

Along with the usual reminders (water, nutrition, helmet and ID), you may want to pack your Wellies, but let's hope for the best!

Ride Leader Reminder

We are still looking for volunteers to lead the ride next week (7/28). If you are willing to lend a hand, please drop me an email.

7/21 Saturday Ride

Thanks to some last minute volunteers, we will have a ride tomorrow. Given the late hour, I'm not going to post a map here, but I believe that the long ride will head out Mountain Rd. and then over Dutton Hill to Pineland. The shorter route will likely follow Blackstrap all the way to Blanchard and then head straight down to 88 and back to town.

Ride Leaders Needed

Bron and I both have conflicts the next two Saturdays, so we are looking for volunteer ride leaders for this coming Saturday (7/21) and the following week (7/28). If you are interested in helping us out either of these weeks, please drop me an email. Thanks.

7/14 Saturday Ride

This week we'll leave the shop at the usual just past 8:00am and head up toward Freeport (MapMyRide route). There won't be an official longer route, but for those who want some extra miles you can certainly head left when we hit South Freeport Rd. and meander up toward Brunswick.

As always, remember to bring ID that includes emergency contact information.

Please drop me an email with any questions.

7/7 Saturday Ride

It looks like another standard summer day is on tap for this Saturday. We'll plan to leave the shop just after 8:00 to head out through Falmouth and Cumberland and then toss in a few hills for good measure (MapMyRide route). For those riders who haven't been missing the hills or would just rather keep the ride closer to 30 miles, you can simply take a right when we hit Blanchard and head straight down to Rte 88 rather than doing the loop over Dutton Hill.

Don't forget to bring emergency contact information with you on the ride—it's not optional. Also, it's likely going to be hot, so consider bringing more than just water. Something with electrolytes is not a bad idea.

On the safety front, please be mindful of the Group Ride Guidelines. We are going to be paying particular attention to erratic riding and are initiating a relegation policy for crossing the yellow line.

If you have any questions, please drop me an email
