Week 1:
A meet and greet ride on primarily bike paths with little climbing, taking it easy as we ease out of the summer heat. At 24 miles, we'll be done by a little after 8:30 am, giving us time to start at a reasonable 7:00 am.

About Downtown El Tour Training Rides:
Welcome to the El Tour Training Ride Series from Downtown. These rides start from where El Tour starts at Armory Park, and pick off different portions of the course (as well as some of my favorite rides). The end to each ride has a breakfast/brunch option. The rides will increase from 24 miles week 1 to close to 100 miles prior to El Tour. Pace will always be a C+ to a B (12-16 mph average) depending on elevation gain.
