Pace Lines

Since last week’s ride was awash, literally and nobody wanted to ride, tomorrow’s road ride (June 19th) will be the same plan. We will meet at Aweres school at 7pm. The A and B groups will do an out and back on 552, maintaining a pace line for the duration of the ride, most likely breaking up at the end to do the 552 hill climb before regrouping at the top. Depending on the turn out, we may have two groups, and the rides will be drop rides so choose your group wisely.

For the C group I would like to do an out and back on 556.

Tomorrow’s road ride (June 12th) will be at Aweres school still at 7pm. The A and B groups will do an out and back on 552, maintaining a pace line for the duration of the ride, most likely breaking up at the end to do the 552 hill climb before regrouping at the top. Depending on the turn out, we may have two groups, and the rides will be drop rides so choose your group wisely.

For the C group I would like to do an out and back on 556.

Hill Repeats!

For tomorrow’s road ride we’ll meet at Aweres school again and this time we’ll do hill repeats. The A and B rides will (or at least can) be drop rides as everybody does some laps of the local hills. A riders should shoot for about 2 loops, B riders 1 loop.

I plan on an out and back along 556 for the C group. That has a lot of ups and downs, but nothing huge all at once. If we’re a more adventurous group, maybe we’ll try some hill repeats on 552. 

Sprint Regroups

Who’s ready for some new scenery? Me at least and I plan the rides. We’ll meet in Heyden tomorrow (Wednesday, May 29th) at 7 at the Aweres School .

Here we will change the way we’ve been splitting the groups, with the A and B riders having some sprint/regroups on a 38km route along 552 to Post Office Rd where you’ll turn around and head up Bellevue Valley Rd for the big climb before coming back to Aweres School on Hwy 556. You will ride socially until you get to the three sprints and the, well, sprint. At the end of the sprints sections, everybody will  wait or soft pedal until everybody has caught up.

The first sprint will be a flat sprint on Hwy 552 starting at Hwy 552 and Pruce Rd. and Ending at the Intersection of Hwy 552 and Post Office Rd.

The second sprint is on the climb. It will start at the bend in the road  at the beginning of the climb and end at the culvert after the “Stop Sign Ahead” sign. (Note: this is not the same as the Strava segment. This is for fun, not contesting the K/QOM. Please do not race up to Hwy 556.)

If your legs are still up for it, there is a bonus sprint on Hwy 556 from the “Road bends left” sign to the Ulch Rd sing just before the railroad tracks. (Note: This also is not the Strava segment. We’re here to have fun, not to set new Strava records. Please do not race across the railroad tracks.)

For the C group, I have three possible routes depending on how much punishment we want to endure. The route will be decided by the riders before we set out. This will be a completely social ride, but friendly sprint challenges are permitted.
