We’ll start late in hopes of higher temperatures. We will NOT have a rest stop, so please plan accordingly.
We are trying to refocus on the original intent of this ride so that it includes some hammering but also regrouping. When turnout is big (20+) we might separate into smaller groups. One way or another, we will strive to communicate clearly before and/or during the ride.
This is a pace-line training ride emphasizing the group. There will be 2-6 competitive segments(sprints and/or climbs) with regrouping afterward. This is not a hammer ride or race simulation.
Riders should take short pulls (30-90 seconds) at the front so the group self-regulates its pace. If you’re having a bad day please take extremely short or no pulls in order to hang with and not slow the group. But don’t suck wheel all day and then contest competitive sections. We’re all domestiques on this ride.
