The Long Way Around

For those who are prepping for Ironman or Tri's or those of us who just like logging miles...

This is 81. Wondered if anyone is interested in tagging along. Guadalupe east is a steady grind for 16 miles. Ellsworth is fairly easy & Riggs Rd from Ellsworth to Maricopa Rd is downhill. Looking to keep the average around 18 which is do-able seeing as how Riggs is 25+mph. Did the short route 10/26, 65 miles in 4.5 hours. With 4 stops this should be right at 6 hours total time.

Hopefully we'll have enough people to split into two groups, however you should be capable of running 17-20 on the flats and be comfortable in a pace line and/or drafting if you're planning on doing this one. It eases the load and reduces the time for everyone if you work together.

Out Guadalupe to Ellsworth, S to Riggs, turn right and off towards California...

Paradise Bakery is on the South end of the Pueblo-Anozira center on the Southeast corner of McClintock & Guadalupe next to Pei-Wei.

Be ready to roll at 7:30am. Starting early for the distance. Helmets Required

    Please do this ride again! Not currently prepared for 81 but definitely will be in a few weeks and would like some company since training for an IM.

    Note the time change please. Temp @ sunrise in Tempe is forecast at 39. That's downtown Tempe. It'll be about 35 where we leave from unless the forecast changes. At 7:30 at least the sun will be up

    Nice ride! I'd love to come but its a bit to early for me to say 100% yes right now. I'd love to be reminded about the first of the month.
