• "FALL in Love" Coffee-Bike Love (20-35 miles) - GUYS Welcome
    Do you love your bike? Do you love coffee? Do you love your girlfriends? Good, this Fall series is just the perfect way to encourage each other to keep gathering, sipping and sharing our love for biking in lovely Washington County. This is a weekly Friday ride series that will run through Fall, ending December 14th. Rides will range between 20-35 miles. We'll likely pick a few routes and rotate through them. Expect flats, expect rollers and expect an occasional climb. We won't be blazing fast, but not slow either. We will roll about 14-17 mph on flat roads, but with the hills we'll climb at our own pace and regroup at the top. Speedsters are welcome, but we'll ask you to loop back and be supportive of the slower among us. 9:00 Come early to warm up with coffee & girlfriends 10:00 Wheels rolling with a route to keep you warm and enchanted 12:00-1:00 is approximate ending time, but please flexible as sometimes things happen. PARKING: Longbottom's manager has requested that we park our cars in the far end of the parking lot so we are not occupying spaces while we are riding. ROUTES: We will rotate between the following routes. See Comments section each week where we will announce the route for that Friday. • PUTT-PUTT PEDALING FOR PUMPKINS (as in "Pumpkin Ridge"). Our easiest route, we'll putter along, taking in the fabulous fall colors, orange and gold, for 21 miles of mostly flat ride with a few rolling hills. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28793157 • HELVETICA'S HAUNTED TRESTLE! A moderate ride of 27 miles, three not-so-scary climbs and - if you dare - a ride beneath the Holcomb Haunted Trestle!! https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28793124 • THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME - OFF TO KANSAS CITY! We'll be clicking our cleats at least three times as we roll out to Kansas City and Verbort for a total of 32 miles - expect rolling hills. (Feel free to wear your ruby slippers to coffee!) https://ridewithgps.com/routes/3697269 • FINDING FOREST IN THE GROVE (35 miles moderate rollers & flat) https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28793211 P-L-E-A-S-E, RSVP if you're coming AND un-RSVP if you're not. WHO IS THIS RIDE FOR? If you've been biking regularly through the summer, you'll find this series very do-able. If you're brand new to biking, you may find the pace a little brisk, but feel free to come out and give it a try. We're a supportive bunch and will do our best to encourage you. At the same time, if you're riding a heavy or cruiser-style bike, you'll likely find our pace very challenging. If you have a strong preference for quiet bike paths or love a super-slow pace, then this is probably not be a good fit. RIDE DIFFICULTY: Rural Roads with traffic, occasional trucks. • Pace: A keep-warm pace of 14-17 MPH means we'll keep moving and breaks will be minimal. We'll encourage like-paced riders to stick together and regroup as needed. • Terrain: routes will vary. Expect flats, rollers and some climbing. SWEEPER: No planned sweeper, will regroup as needed. RESTROOMS AT THE START: Yes RIDE LEADER: Carolyn Jen[masked] REQUIRED: Helmet, flat repair kit (inner tube, tire levers, pump or CO2). No ear buds. Your bike must be in good working order. All riders need to sign a waiver. REMINDER: Bring water, snacks, ID, cell phone. WEATHER: Check back for updates on the day of the ride. Changes will be posted no later than 2 hours before the start.
