Next Meetup

Breakaway Cafe Ride - Probably Carrboro or Maybe Mebane, TBD
Route to Carrboro (probably and via Collins Mountain/ Old Greensboro/Wildcat Creek/White Cross/Butler/Dodson X to Daryland, if you want to back track us from WP) or Mebane (below) but the group may choose another distance and destination if desired. Start at Breakaway with a meet up at 8:45-ish and roll out at 9:00 AM after coffee(?) and Danielle's baked goods(?) to get us buzzing. Break at Open Eye or Filiment and return to Breakaway. Pace around 17.5-MPH and if the group is willing and able we'll work on paceline riding and a rotating through and off double paceline. This is a no drop recovery ride and pace! Please let me know if you plan on coming, we can be a bit flexible on the start or can meet you. (A good spot coming from WP is River and Jones Ferry, leaving at the same time as we leave). BA Mebane 66 mile (Carrboro ~53 miles) Please don't forget the waiver thing as well!! And please take the time to review the ride rules.
