We’ll be riding to Saxapahaw this Saturday (Jun 15) at a steady (easing on the climbs) pace of 19 mph. Starting near Green Level West & NC 55 at 8:30 a.m. using the following route:
80 miles w/ 3,700 ft. elevation gain
Joining enroute is fine, but if you’re doing that, I recommend letting us know in a comment when/where to expect you.
Although this is technically a drop ride, we will endeavor to keep the group together as long as folks can maintain the average pace, and sitting in/skipping pulls is fine. We will regroup after Lystra and Mt. Olive Church climbs in particular.
Main rest stop is the coffee shop in Saxapahaw. Optional port-a-potty stop at Frosty’s and 2nd espresso at Breakaway Cafe!
Get your intensity out of the way during the week, then chill out with us for some mitochondria boosting endurance miles on Saturday 🙂
No matter the season, but especially during the summer, please be sure to bring plenty of water and a snack so that you can stay hydrated and refuel as needed.
Helmets are required.
New riders should read Bicycling Hand Signals, Group Riding Tips, Equipment, Nutrition, Hydration in the “More” section.
All riders should carry proper equipment in case they have a flat (spare tube, pump or CO2 cartridge). All bicycles should be in proper mechanical order.
It is strongly recommended that you carry your driver’s license, health insurance card (or copies), a note containing emergency contact information or Road I.D. in case of an emergency. You may also want to program your cell phone with an emergency contact number under the name “ICE” In Case of Emergency. The note containing emergency contact information may be used if your cell phone becomes inoperable following a crash.
