Eastside Chagrin River / Squire's Castle Ride

We'll meet at Squire's Castle at 9:00am & head out at 9:15am. This will be a ride with plenty of climbs, but we leave no rider behind! We'll head south on River Rd for about 45 min then turn around. You peddle as hard / fast / long as you want & turn around. Some will be faster, some (like me) will be slower.

I say this is an intermediate ride for sure. The hills heading south can be tough. But us Eastsiders are tougher!!!

We'll pick somewhere to eat when we get there.

*Helmets & safety gear suggested.

    The start location is the same I just had the wrong address for Squire's Castle. DUH! I don't know why people let me organize these things! :)

    Approx how many miles do u anticipate this ride to be? 10-15, 15-30...

      Cathy - You can ride at your own pace. Someone will lead the ride, and another will 'sweep' at the back... so nobody gets left behind. After 45 minutes, we will all turn around and head back... thus everyone will arrive back at virtually the same time. With 90 minutes of potential ride time, faster riders could cover 22 - 30 miles (15 to 20 mph)... while slower riders could do 15 - 20 (10 to 14 mph).

      See you on Saturday! :-)

    Reason for asking, have mountain bike, a bit hard on pavement for great length rides

    July 10, 2013

    • Brian

      Mountain bikes actually give a softer ride (larger tires, lower air pressure, some have suspensions). Road bikes give a hard ride (skinny tires, high tire pressures that don't give on a bump, no suspension). The trade-off is that a mountain bike is typically geared lower and a bit heavier.

      I have ridden both my road bike and my mountain bike on this route. I *think* Valarie is doing a timed out and back - meaning, we will ride for X minutes, then turn around. The Tuesday Rock Star Ride does this, and all riders return to the start at virtually the same time! So, it matters not how fast or how far you go!

      Oh - the return ride will be downstream of the Chagrin River, meaning it will be gradually downhill - and a bit easier! :-)
