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. Edit: Ok, you all are animals and already fit - we are at B+ already.
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. Edit: Yes, that means we will paceline wherever possible.
Fri, 5/19 Update: Ride #4 has been changed to account for the weather forecast - the original plan didn't provide many bailouts. Ride #4 is still designed to increase effort, but pacelining will be sporadic on these roads. We will still focus on working together. Expect a group pace near 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.
