Let's Roll... Flatwoods Park

3-4 Laps at Flat-woods Park...

Don't forget money for parking $2.00

Ride ETIQUETTE - Pace 18-25 MPH or no higher than 155 BPM HR (based on conditions). We will do laps with interval and we will push the pace...

We encourage all riders to help with pulls -

If you plan on helping with pulls - please read below:

- When getting off the front - Bump your closed fist on your right hip, maintaining your speed you slide to the left...

- Allowing the rider behind you to take over. Allow the pace line to pass you and re-join on the back. The NEW leader should maintain a steady pace to allow the rotating rider to join in. (Do not pick up speed when it's your turn to pull until we have all riders on) Remember the rider(s) pulling is doing 100% of the work everyone else is doing 70% or less... So there the initial desire to go faster... DON'T!

Be Predictable - If you need to slow down - you must hand-signal the rider(s) behind you before you apply your brakes - Place your left hand on your side toward the ground and motion as if your are slowing. Overlapping another riders wheel - Ideally you want to avoid, however, it will happen - Keep calm DO NOT HIT YOUR BRAKES... Use the above technique to warn the riders behind you and re-adjust your speed by using the AIR to slow you down - the adjustment will be much more fluid and safer...

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
