F21 Hatchery to Jackson Hwy via South Canal Sprint Series

  • Apr 30, 2013 · 5:15 PM

Ride Summary:

Terrain: Flat with a few optional steep short hills
Distance: approx ~21 Miles
Rider Level: Intermediate riders and up.
Sweep: No

You should be able to maintain a pace of 19 mph for ~15 flat miles on your own if you want to stay with the back of the pack. The pace varies from 19-25+ mph depending on the pace line you ride with.

This bi-weekly ride will be a fast paced ride designed to build endurance, speed, and practice pacelines. We'll meet at 5:15pm and leave at 5:30pm or before if all the Yes RSVPs are present. Please update your RSVP if you cannot make the event. We'll ride .25 miles to the entrance of the South Canal and head west. There are 2 road crossings where we need to exercise caution, Sunrise and Whiterock. Once the coast is clear we'll continue on the trail down to Jackson Hwy. We'll take a short break, then head back to the Hatchery.  On the way back, we'll work on a rotating pace line.

Do not be discouraged if you get dropped on this ride. The break does not start until the last rider arrives at the break point. The idea is to push yourself but please exercise caution, we don't need anyone having any issues because they pushed themselves too hard. PLEASE KNOW YOUR LIMITS!

Here are two links that give some good pointers on dos and don'ts while in a paceline.

Paceline etiquette, Part 2

Please bring plenty of water and as always your helmet is required.

If you have any questions please let me know

    Another windy night. Good ride and great company. Would like to see some more HWs out there though.

    Great ride as always (except for that darn wind). Averaged 25 on the way out and 15 on the way back......nice.

    Good hard ride. Fighting the wind coming back was not fun.

    I noticed this when I RSVP'd. Thanks guys. If there's ever a time when neither of you could make it, I would be glad to lead it.

    My start date in Construction has been pushed back a week, so it looks like I'll be able to make this one.

    I will need someone to take over this ride starting with this one. I will be starting a new assignment at work which will likely prevent me from attending this ride regularly.
