On August 21, prior to the ride, Dave from Durham Cycles will be doing bike inspections free of charge for the MS ride in New Bern. You will want an inspection sticker in case you have a mechanical issue during the ride. If you have registered for the MS ride in New Bern you will be able to pick-up your registration packet after the ride on August 21. If you have not yet registered, please do so promptly. At TOD we ride not only for fun and to hang out with the cool kids, but to help cure this horrible disease. Bike inspections begin at 5:15 and the ride begins promptly at 6pm as usual.
21.7 mile course has a 1000′ of elevation gain and an out and back leg to keep riders off busy roads.
We are a no-drop ride, meaning that a designated “ride sweep” will stop at intersections to assist anyone who needs direction or is having difficulties. Please note, sweep is a volunteer role and not guaranteed for every ride.
This is a multi-pace ride. We will break into 2 or 3 groups based on pace, but all riders should be able to hold a average 15 mph pace on a hilly course.
We will meet in Greenwood Commons Shopping Center parking lot.
A helmet, water, spare tube, patch kit and pump are required. Glasses are recommended for eye protection.
After the ride, join us at the Glass Jug (http://glass-jug.com/) for a cold beverage. Select beers will be $3. Post ride hunger pangs? You can order dinner from one the restaurants in shopping center or schedule a dinner delivery from one of several local places. Glass Jug owners welcome all outside food.
Riders leave the parking lot at 6:00 PM.
