I’m sorry, ladies, but I have a bit of a cold I’d like to get over, so I am cancelling tomorrow’s road ride.
We will be meeting Wednesday night (August 14th) at 7 at the lighthouse in Richard’s Landing.
The A-B route has been revised for the changes made last week. The first sprint will be from the turn onto A Line until the Kentvale sign just before K Line. The second sprint will be on 548 from the small driveway just after turning onto it until the church parking lot. The final sprint will be Up Gawas Hill again from the F&G Line intersection until the Sprotsman’s sign at the top of the hill.
I will take the C ride on a 20km loop that we can add to as our legs allow.
Just a reminder that there will be a women’s road ride tomorrow, Tuesday, August 13th, at 7pm at McMeeken Arena. I’ve got a nice 20km route planned that we can expand if our legs allow. THis will be a social, no drop ride and we should expect to be out for 1 – 1 1/2 hours depending on our speed.
This week’s road ride will move out to Richard’s Landing on St. Joe’s Island. We’ll meet at the lighthouse in Richard’s landing for seven.
Per an interesting request, the A and B rides will follow the same route every week with three weeks of sprint regroups in different locations followed by the forth week as a self timed event. This week we’ll have three sprints:
Sprint 1 will be on Gilbertson Hill from the left on 548 to the next left on 548.
Sprint 2 will be on Hilton Rd. from 10th Line to 20th Line.
Sprint 3 will be up Gawas Bay hill from F&G Line to the Sportsman’s Storage sign at the top of the hill.
The C ride is planned for a 21km loop that can be expanded quite a bit at the end depending on how our legs are feeling and how much we love hills.
I’ll be running some beginner friendly women’s road rides every Tuesday in August (and maybe into September if there is interest). We’ll meet at the McMeeken Arena to roll out at 7pm each Tuesday. I will keep the routes to 20-25km and we should expect to be out for 1-1:30 hours. Some of the same roads will be used on these rides, but I promise a different route each week.
These will be social, no drop rides with a little bit of skill training thrown in. Come on out and meet some like-minded women.
