Midweek Eastside Evening Training Series After Dark – The MEETS rides are held Tuesday evenings at 6 pm. These training rides incorporate local hills and range between 20-25 miles and from ~1200 to 2000 feet of elevation. Paces offered include Moderate, Brisk, and Strenuous. All use a common course each week.
Riders should be able to sustain the appropriate pace for their selected group, read a cue sheet, change a flat (and have the requisite equipment), and have a positive attitude! Faster riders and better climbers are welcome to join but for them the ride becomes self-paced and self-guided. Riders can ride on their own, in small groups, or with the appropriate pace ride leader. A limited number of cue sheets will be available at ride start so please print your own just in case. The final route and cue sheets will be available the weekend prior to each ride.
Rest stops: There are no planned rest stops as these are short rides. There is NO restroom at the park and ride, so please plan accordingly
Regroup policy: This is a training series, so we ride with the best interest of the group in mind. Riders may need to fall back to a slower pace group, unless you are riding in the last group, in which case the group will regroup as needed to avoid dropping riders. We want everyone to ride hard and have fun and there are multiple pace options to support all riders so no one should feel left behind. Please make sure that you print a cue sheet in case you want to ride ahead or get separated for some reason. Please make sure to print your contact information clearly on the waiver so that we can reach you as necessary
Please RSVP and check back for updates the day of the ride. RSVP is not required, but would be MUCH appreciated.
