Paceline Fundamentals Practice

This is designed to be a training/learning workout drill with the goal being working together, learning smoothness, handling skills, hand signals. If like skilled riders work together instead of trying to drop one another it will be more fun and less intimidating.

I foresee at least 2 groups participating, possibly as outlined below.

A: 19-20mph on the HEADWIND side (holding our speed to 22mph on the Tailwind side)

B: 17-18mph on the HEADWIND side (holding our speed to 21mph on the Tailwind side)

Showing up early will allow you a chance to warm up as hear some technique pointers as well as how we will conduct the paceline.

Please resist the temptation to keep up with the MUCH FASTER groups and ending up burning out quickly.

If you are looking for more of a TRUE CRIT practice please show up here on Tuesday's @ 7pm to ride with SC Velo...They will humble you REAL QUICK!!

Because of the nature of what this community has become it IS NOT INDICATIVE of all other BoBie rides , so PLEASE do not judge our group rides by what you experience on Thursday evening's "Paceline".

Rain cancels the ride.

Helmets are mandatory on all BOBIE rides. Bring hydration, spare tube, nutrition and appropriate clothing to be comfortable during the entire ride. (The weather can and will change during the ride.)

    While Ralph paced the A group I held back and worked on technique with the "B" group. I will be doing that on a much more regular basis. I truly want to get the technique down pat. That is my promise to those that come out.

      Group A was a nice workout, but also take a lot of effort. Next time I will join group B to actually participate in the effort (instead of drafting just drafting) and to also hone in on the technique.

    Was a great ride. Good paceline practice. Just like learning a football play. First you do a walk through, then at half speed and lastly full speed. If you cannot execute it at full speed then back down you go till everyone has it down pat.

    I will be working with a "B" group to concentrate on technique rather than just speed and will encourage some of the stronger BoBie's to take charge of the faster group.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
