Saturday "A" Ride, Oct. 22nd

Hi Folks!

Lets bump this week's start time back to 8:30 a.m. We will again meet at Depot Park in Clarkston. This road training ride is 50 or so miles, with the route and pace determined by those present at the park. This is a "drop" ride, so please bring navigational assistance if you decide to fall back. Should be a little chilly for the first few miles, so please dress accordingly. Proper paceline and safety etiquette are observed on this ride.

I hope to see you there! -Ken

Wednesday gravel road ride - cancelled

I'm not a meteorolgist yet, but it appears it's going to rain tonight. The chance of rain increases with each passing hour starting at 5pm. By 7pm, it seems a pretty sure thing. That means we would likely finish in the rain. We could try to stay close to home base, but that means another edition of the subdivision tour. 

I'm thinking that most folks who are serious about riding this time of year are training for Iceman. If that's you, I suggest that tonight you go out as early as you can and do your own training ride, and get yourself home before 7-8pm.

Hope to see you next week. It looks like it will be much cooler next week, but hopefully drier.
