    Ride Description:

    This ride was designed for those us who need to start training for Slovang. We will be stopping at Papa Tony's Diner for breakfast.  Please allow about an hour to eat as the food is yummy but slow in the making.  This ride is designed to give us more climbing and a little more distance.  I wanted to make this a D ride but with the distance and hills there is no way it can be classified as anything but a C ride.  We will do our regular stops and maintain more of a D rider pace. It is a little longer than a standard "D" but is definitely doable for those that have been riding regularly. 

    This ride is all on city streets with decent bike lanes.  The climbs are not steep but double the climbing compared to a lot of our short rides. We are trying to average an overall 12 mph pace.

    Come one, come all if you think this ride suits you fine!

    Don't worry, we have a NO DROP policy so you won't be left behind. There will be several regroups as needed along the way. Typically, a ride of this length will take 2 hours to complete including regroups and rest stops dependent upon the fitness level of the riding group. 

    We also require that you wear a quality bicycle helmet, bring a bike in safe riding condition, carry spare tubes with a method of inflating them, and that you be able handle your bike safely over mixed terrain.  Fixies, tandems, hybrids, and/or mountain bikes are welcome.  No stress necessary, if you have no idea how to change a flat, we will be happy to assist you!

    We occasionally pay a post-ride visit to one of our local merchants to refuel and socialize a bit, so bring cash and/or a debit card if you want to hang out and buy some goodies...

    If you have any questions about your ability or preparation to do this ride, please contact me directly through the Meetup messaging system, text, or phone call.

    Just a thought Ben, if it is windy in Rancho, change the route and head down Euclid to Chino and back. That way you keep our butts on our bikes and you can help prepare your friends for the Solvang.

      Plan to repost but make it a little longer each month. The issue is the wind in this area can be the worst. So if its bad wind I will cancel.
