The Return of the September "Stress Reliever" Series

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 an any event but would love some company.  Join me!

Update: I intended to post the "usual" pace for an average of 15-16 mph, meaning we would start out at about 18 mph.  However, I don't want people to be intimidated by the pace and not join because they can't keep up.  We have the whole month to get out and improve our endurance.  If you are a slower rider, I am very willing and happy to ride at a slower pace with you and let faster riders go ahead of the group. 

If you are running late or have a last minute change of plans and need to contact me, give me a call.  My cell phone number is[masked]-4881.

    The farthest I have cycled is 8 miles, so I'm just not yet up to par. I wish there were more slow and shorter rides in Saint Paul. :) I would love to cycle with others rather than alone.

    Hopefully I'll be joining you in a week when my injuries heal.
