6/13/13 NOTE CHANGE IN MEET-UP LOCATION MAP.
The initial map of the meet-up location was incorrect. Should have double checked it not just assumed it was right. I have corrected it.
The address 18005 Medina Rd, Plymouth, MN 55446.
Sorry about the error. -TB
IMPORTANT: Please note I've changed the date on this ride so that it does not conflict with the MS-150. Contrary to the "theme" of these rides, this ride (and this ride only) will now be held on the third Saturday of the month. Hopefully the riders who have already signed-up will still be able to make it, and to them, and to the MS-150 riders, my apologies.
This year we will be hosting Century Rides on the Second Saturday of every month from May to October. This will be an opportunity for experienced riders to get in some miles, see some scenery, or simply do that century ride they’ve always wanted to do.
Important! These rides are intended for experienced riders only, and will NOT include SAG support (unless mentioned elsewhere). Naturally we will watch-out for one another (flat tires, etc.), but all riders will be expected to be self-sufficient (food, water, tubes/patch kit, tools, money, etc.), as well as have an adequate back-up plan in case they should need to SAG out. Although you will be able to ride your own pace, riders should understand that extended delays and/or frequent stops by one are unfair to the rest of the group, and those that cannot keep a reasonable pace, or experience problems that are beyond our ability to fix quickly, will be asked to SAG out, otherwise you could compromise the safety of all the riders.
With regards to weather, the plan for these rides is simple: Should there be a “rain delay” on the scheduled day of the ride, the same ride will automatically be rescheduled for the following weekend (3rd Saturday). Should it rain on that weekend as well, the ride will be canceled entirely.
Having said that, we would like to introduce the second ride of the "Second Saturday Century Series" which will be a combination commuter rail "out"/cycle "in" ride hosted by Terry B. Details are still in-progress, but will be posted soon, so please "watch this space"!
