Spin into the Setting Sun

WHAT: The evenings have plenty of light now for the weekly WEDNESDAY 20-25 mile ride. Route information will be announced in the comments section below.

We will roll out from a convenient Longmont location. Depending on how many riders and/or ride leaders, we will ride in 2 or 3 groups:

GROUP Abici: This group will be at a faster pace                                                             (17 to 19mph average).

GROUP Basso: This group will be at a medium/fast pace                                                (15 to 17mph average).

GROUP Cinelli: This group will be at a medium pace                                                        (13 to 15mph average).

This ride is best suited for Road Bikes, and people with experience riding on the road with traffic.

Both Rides will be "NO DROP", we will try to keep everyone together, but in the event some are faster/slower, we will stop and re-group at intervals.

RIDE NOTES: Rides roll out no more than 5 minutes after advertised start time, arrive early and be ready to roll on time.

- Come prepared for mechanical breakdowns (bring spare tube, patch kit, tire levers, multi-tool).

- Be sure to bring enough water for the length of the ride, especially with warmer weather ahead of us. As a general rule, one bottle of water is good for 1 hour of riding (8oz per 20 mins of ride time).

DISCLAIMER: We try to ensure the safest cycling experience on all of our rides, but cycling does come with some risk. Our ride leaders are all volunteers, not professional guides. Each member accepts responsibility for their own conduct and safety (including the safety of your bicycle and any other equipment) during club rides. You take part in club rides entirely at your own risk.

      I did a fair bit of slacking and despite it, still have kept some of my cycling form. The mind boggles. :P

      I told Nick before we started that he had screwed up. Sunshine, no wind, and it was warm. I should not have said anything since Nick went and turned the wind on

    Weather is looking good for our first SISS ride of the season, low 50's, light winds, and sunny :).
    If you're coming out to 300 Suns on a bike - From the West 1st and 2nd Avenues both have a light to cross Main Street, and 1st Avenue and Martin provides access from the East.

    Since we're a little short on evening light still, we may try this route out, a 18 miler: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/4235717
    If you plan to stick around for a beer, be sure to bring bike lights :)
