B/B+, Spring Tune-Up #3, 48mi

Been off the bike for a while? Been enjoying too much craft brew? I'm with ya - it's been my story for awhile.

For Spring 2023, I'm starting a series of rides (4 to 6 to ??) to help get us back in riding shape. Over the next several weeks, we'll ramp up from low B to B+ in effort level.

But there's more to it than just being in shape and riding faster. If you're really interested in riding as a group (and not just a group ride), this may be for you. Those who want to learn are 100% welcome; same for those who already know what I'm talking about; those who value personal mph maybe not so much.

Ride #3 is designed to increase effort; riders in past weeks have demonstrated that they've already put in some miles this year (hence B/B+). This route is a greater distance, with more short hills; though no major hills yet.  We will still focus on working together in single pacelines (see animation and here) in many stretches. Expect a group pace near 15-16 mph.

Rest stop (Turkey Hill) at mile 28.

I will increase the # of available slots if the ride fills up and I have other riders registered who I know can help out.
