Announcing a new Meetup for The NJ Biking, Eating & Drinking Group!

What: Intermediate Training Ride & Discussion

When: Sunday, June 27,[masked]:00 AM

Mercer County Park
334 S Post Rd
West Windsor, NJ

So you've been riding for awhile and you think you're pretty awesome, but what class ride do you fall into? A? B? Or even ::gasp:: C?? Do you average a 14mph or 20mph pace and how do you tell? Should you get a wireless or wired bike computer? Bibs or shorts? Chamois cream, really?? If you haven't switched to clipless, what is the best brand to start with or is there?

Once you get past the beginner level riding, things get a bit more complicated (and fun). So this is going to be a nice training ride (we'll start with a C pace, step it up to a B and even sprint as an A group for a very short time) so you can have an idea of your comfort level. Once we've done that, we'll fall into a nice fast C pace (depending on the skill, could be faster) and practice pace line etiquette.

Ride followed with drinks and bike talk at Jo Jo's in Hamilton.

Road bikes with slick tires only on this ride.

We'll meet at the West Picnic area of Mercer (all Sunday rides start here). Mercer Park has one main drag with two entrances, just stay on the main road until you see a wooden sign for West Picnic. I'll send out my cell # prior to the ride, so bring that in case you have issues.

Just a reminder, there is a $20 membership fee for the year. You can pay online or in cash at the next event. Thank you to all who have paid thus far, you're awesome! :)
