The Return of the September "Stress Reliever" Series

  • Sep 1, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

A September to remember! Last year I posted a daily ride in mid-September and I rode 17 consecutive days.  Miles logged were 400+.  This year, I'm aiming for the full month. 30 consecutive days, weather permitting.  I will not ride in rain or snow or tornadoes.  Stress is a given in our daily lives.  Biking outdoors is a potent antidote to this stress.  Riding in a group gives you a challenge to push yourself a little, get some miles in, and enjoy the company of others who love to ride. This is an opportunity to live in the moment and leave all your worries behind.  It's not about the speed or the distance.  It's about making a commitment to getting out, enjoying one of Minnesota's most beautiful months  and letting go of whatever ails you.   I would like this to be a series of rides that are challenging but not competitive.  Pace and routes as the group decides but generally moderate, around 15 to 16 mph and distance of around 20 miles.  We  can meet up for social time after the rides at Luce, Chipotle or Mainstreet.  I will be out there in any event but would love some company.  Join me!

    Not sure if I'll be joining you right away. I took a fall on my bike today and am working my way back!

    Tamsie: are you expecting people to sign up every day they plan to come or just once on this page. I assumed the later.

    police recovered our stolen bikes. The speed might be a bit challenging for me, but perhaps a couple of us can hang back a bit. Still have to figure out if we can make it, though.

    I am committing to ride each day when work permits at a slow speed sometimes solo and sometimes +1 for the month. Many days I will meet up with the group afterwards-thanks Tamsie!

    I am going to try this. I can not be there everyday at six pm, but will come as often as possible. I cannot come the first night. I am comfortable at 15-6 MPH and 20 miles but above that I might have problems. This will be a good challenge. Thanks

  • Rocky (.

    I may try this...thanks
