The Thursday Night Ride Goes On!

With so much more light, there is now time to branch out a little. While still keeping the Fairmount Loop and stop at Council Crest, we'll start heading out Skyline or down into NW, just so we can climb up again. Who knows. Expect more miles, and more hills as the days lengthen.

Please note: this seems to be an advanced, maniac level ride, pretty fast, hilly and rambunctious. Feel free to give it a shot, even if you have doubts. We do regroups at hilltops and major turns. Strong intermediate riders are welcome.

There are no restroom facilities at the starting point.

This is an all-weather ride. A windy thunderstorm might cancel it. Maybe.


Ride leader: Paul Johnston [masked][masked]

Date and Time of Ride: Thursdays at 6:00 pm

Meeting Point: Foot  of the Hwy 26 bike path..


The Route: Changes weekly

Route Stats: TBD

Pace and terrain rating.

Type of ride: This is an intermediate level training ride. We will regroup at hilltops and major turns. If you are concerned about your ability to keep up, feel free to give it a shot, but be a good sport and be prepared to make your own way back if the pace is too much.

Weather Cancellation Policy. Only extreme weather will cancel this ride. ****************************************************

Mandatory for all riders.

Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request. Obey traffic laws and remember you’re a representative of the greater cycling community and should conduct yourself that way on the road. Represent us well!

Have their ride in good working order and bring a flat kit & the right size spare tube on all rides. If there is an issue with proper working or lack of equipment you may be asked to sit the ride out.

Please ask for help if you are ill equipped prior to the ride, we will help if we can!

    Great training ride. Worked on my cadence instead of mashing gears ... my calves are paying for it now.

    If it's raining ... I'm not going to show. I'm a fair-weather biker until I have fenders.

    Looks like cold and rain ... take warm clothes back out and be prepared for 75% chance of rain.
