This is a no drop ride but, please (especially early in the season) be careful and midful about riding in close quarters of a pace line. Obey all traffic laws, same as vehicles. Safety is nost important.

Preview - Saturday Depot B-Group Road Ride

Hi Gang.

Spring is here. I've been getting several private e-mails asking when the beloved Saturday Depot B-Group road ride will start. Here's the scoop. Several of us have been volunteering April 8, 15, and 22nd for the FRCC hosted road racing at Waterford Hills Raceway on Saturdays. We welcome you to join that fun too either by racing of volunteering.

God willing with reasonable weather, we will start the Depot B-Group morning ride on Saturday April 29th. Watch next week for further detail.

The B-Group is a no-drop ride. We cruise at 18-20 mph and are in close pace line formation. Safety is paramount. Obey all traffic laws and support each other. The ride is usually ~48 miles with a stop half way.

The Depot ride does not require that you are an FRCC member however, in my expereince, the Tuesday race track is where I have learned my paceline riding skills most effectively. Thaat is open to guests one time and then requires FRCC membership.

Depot B-Group This is a Non-Post

Gang,

Weather forecast for Saturday suggests 30°F with mid-20's feel at zero mph. The 'feel' temperature is also below the dew point. I've reached my point to cry uncle and crawl indoors to my trainer.

I encourage someone else to post a ride if they choose.

Thanks for the great season!
