MEET at 8:00. WHEELS ROLL at 8:15 SHARP. Please get there in time to get ready. This is a no DROP ride. We will regroup a few times, but please bring a map and cue sheet if you don't know the route. Novice & Intermediate Group levels. Nov 14-15 AVG, Int 16-18 AVG. Please know we love having new people join us and we run the same route for 1 month. There are multiple distance and store stop options. Brought to you by Cyclingswami.com (http://www.cyclingswami.com/) RULES: Helmets required. You will not be allowed to ride without one. Road bikes recommended. Other types of bikes are allowed, but a road bike is the best option for this ride. No headphones while riding. This is a safety issue. Wearing headphones makes it difficult to hear traffic or safety commands. We ask that if you bring a friend, you look after them. This is now a drop ride, and it is not the responsibility of the ride leader(s) to keep track of any one person who is unable to stay with the group. No use of aero bars in the group. If your bike has them, please be respectful of the safety of other riders and only use the aero bars when you are riding off the front or back of the group. It is unsafe to draft while using aero bars. Please have supplies. Please carry 2 tubes that fit your wheels and a frame pump or CO2 cartridges, two full water bottles, and make sure your bike is in great working order. ROUTES: This is a 50-mile route with 2 store stops and we will regroup as needed. There will also be 30 - mile and 40 - mile routes out and same wayback. Planned routes and stops are subject to change based on road conditions, weather, and preferences of the group. A limited number of maps and cue sheets may be available at the start, but you are encouraged to print your own from the links below. You will need to be an mapmyride MVP member to print the cues from the links, but you can copy and paste them into another program if needed. the shorter routes will use the same route out and just turn around at the stops. If you have any questions, please ask on meetup.
The Walnut Creek Trail ride is now every two weeks alternating with this ride. We meet at Don's Automotive and then form a consensus of somewhere fun to go that is NOT the Walnut Creek Trail. Great as it is, it is getting old. We could go south on Emerald Forest through Longview park and back through Sunset Valley. It could be NW and etc. Lots of neat places to go. Daunting hills or relatively flat determined by consensus. We WILL avoid hazardous roads. No drop, of course. Come join us for 25 miles + or - of great company and good riding. Don's phone: five-one-two-4l3, seven oo 1. Thanks from Don and Gayla.
