This week has some great group rides in the area. These are highly recommended for riders who want to get experience riding in a pack. Here are this week’s planned group ride:
- Monday, April 15: [Recovery] We will ride about 25 miles from the co-op at 5 pm. Pace will be slow (15-16 mph). This is a no-drop ride. [2 hr]
- Tuesday, April 16: [Group] If the weather is good, there is a group ride leaving from the municipal parking lot in Rhinebeck at 6 pm. Pace is on the lower end, usually 16-17 mph, and the group generally covers 20 to 30 miles. If interested, please email me about transportation. [2 hr]
- Wednesday, April 17: [Group] Bike Brothers Ride! This week, we’ll be on this side of the river leaving from the Rhinebeck Bicycle Shop at 5:30 pm. Pace will be moderately high (18-19 mph) and we will ride between 30 and 40 miles. This is a drop ride – if you fall off the back the group will not wait for you. Rear lights are recommended for this ride. I highly recommend riders familiar with the area try the Bike Brothers ride this week! [2 hr]
- Thursday, April 18: [Group] Deitz Ride leaves from Deitz Stadium in Kingston at 5:30 pm. Pace is moderate, usually around 17.5 mph. The ride is no-drop and we usually cover between 25 and 30 miles. Please email me if you’re interested in joining so we can work out transportation. [1.5 hr]
Don’t forget: Meeting on Tuesday, April 16 at 7:30 pm in the co-op. This should be a very brief meeting and attendance is encouraged!
Also, anyone interested in racing the RISD Debut next weekend must let me know if they are coming by Wednesday, April 17 by 5 pm. We will leave Friday in the evening, race Saturday morning and be back at Bard in the early evening.
