    Great ride with a really good ride leader. The wind made the 12 miles difficult at times. Riding on Bethlehem Pike even for the short distance should be reconsidered for the tour DE cure 12 mile.

      Thanks Steve. I understand the Bethlehem pike issue. We do actually cut into St Mary's and go through there site but we don't have permission to do that on our rides yet. I will email Ada to see if we can on our training rides like they did last year. We do however still ride on Bethlehem pike twice which I agree isn't the best thanks again.

    Just now seeing this, I'm okay with 9a also... BTW, the time listed says 9:30a, Is that correct, or is it 9:00a?

    • Charlie J.

      Dave. I update it to 930. Just gives me more time if that is OK with all.

    I can do 9 on 4/5. This will be my first ride with a group in preparation for the tour. Looking forward to the experience and riding with the team. Question - no ride this Saturday 3/29?

    • Charlie J.

      Hi Steve. Sounds good for 9. No ride his Saturday as the group is doing the icycle ride in Newark DE. it is a white clay bicycle club ride.

  • Charlie J.
