8:15am Meetup / 8:30am Rollout

This is part of my "Base Miles" series of rides, though this one is slightly shorter and may be a tad faster. These are moderate pace, with the goal of maintaining a consistent pace and cadence for the entire ride. There will be a few short regroups and a longer (15-20min) rest stop. These are No Sweep rides, though I will stop for mechanicals. If you want to hammer faster, that's fine; but I will be maintaining the stated pace and will not chase.

Please print your own route sheet if you think you need one! Especially since this is not a swept ride, it is vital you carry a route sheet if you don't know these areas. I will NOT be printing and passing out sheets for each rider.

Standard Disclaimer: helmets required, bring food & water, cash, and repair stuff to be self-sufficient. You should be comfortable riding roads with auto traffic and some with little to no shoulder/bike path.

Rain cancels this ride.
