B+, Spring Tune-Up #5, 47mi, 3000ft

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.

Ride #5 is designed to increase effort - we do almost all of our climbing before the rest stop at mile 30. One hill of note (Bell Tavern). We will still focus on working together, rotating off the front where possible, and riding in a tight group the whole time. Expect a group pace near 16 mph.

Rest stop at Far Away Farms.
