Calling all B or above level riders, come out and join us for a good workout.
Important Safety NOTICE: As we are going East on Mission Blvd. and are just about to pass under the 60 Fwy we come to a Stop sign. That is a Freeway On-Ramp for the West bound 60 and the cars DO NOT HAVE TO STOP. Come to a complete HARD STOP and allow all cars and trucks to finish their transition onto the freeway. The cars are moving much faster than it seems so let's play it safe and let them pass!!!
Please be courteous to your fellow riders and be ready to roll at 6:30PM sharp. The terrain is VERY FLAT but there may be wind, the ride distance is 26 miles.
We will be changing the route slightly to avoid the worst part of Wineville as well as some of the stop lights on Philadelphia.
Here is the altered route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/4335240
Estimated ride time will be under 2 hours. It may be very cold, dress accordingly!!!
You will need very bright Headlights (500 lumens or more) AND bright rear lights!! Similar to this one: Cree MXL T6 headlight
Safety and riding as a group will be our main goal to give all riders greater visibility when in traffic.
As with all BOBie rides, NO RIDERS WILL BE DROPPED but make sure that you are up for the challenge.
We will stop to regroup for break, restroom and/or refuel as needed.
Helmets are mandatory on all BOBIE rides. Bring hydration, spare tube, nutrition and appropriate clothing to be comfortable during the entire ride. (The weather can and will change during the ride.) Be sure to have Sun Screen for HOT or SUNNY days. Please be sure to bring a "Road ID" or similar up to date IN CASE OF EMERGENCY INFO list with you on all BOBIE rides to allow others to help you if you are unable to help yourself.
NOTE: For safety reasons rain will cancel this ride.
