This is a group ride aiming to average 19 (+/- 0.5 ) mpg. A “constant effort” paceline group, slow up, fast down. Those in front need to be aware of group (increasing power creates gaps) and call out location of holes.
Due to the pandemic, there is a limit of 20 participants and RSVP IS REQUIRED for all riders who either start at WP or plan to join the ride on the road. If you plan to join the ride in progress, please leave a comment below about where we can expect to meet you. Please bring a mask for use when physical distance cannot be maintained (e.g., rest stops, roadside mechanicals) and observe standard courtesy of waiting to spit or blow nose until you’ve rotated to back of paceline.
Your responsibility as part of the group is to RSVP and supply your own cue sheet or download the GPS file.
