    We had a fun ride tonight!

    These rides are for all abilities. The aim is for 1:45 - 2 hours.
    If you have any interest, please come out. Heard from a couple that were nervous to join and some that shied away. NO NEED! We will be going the pace that keeps everyone together.
    Lights are available too, but I need to know ahead of time.

    Hope to see you next week. Steve

    Rides are still going. Weather looks great for Mon. If you'd like to join this Monday I'm sure we can delay the start until ~6:00PM -- if that helps.

    Still tough to get there at that time. 6:30 would be good, but I understand your guys schedule. Hey, once football ends I'll be able to hit it at 5:45 (another 3 weeks)

    Yes, all abilities (for night riding). There is a good chance real beginners will feel uncomfortable, cause a pretty capable mix usually shows. The pace is kept to advanced intermediate, regardless, but if slower folks show, we back her down to intermediate, or a hair less. So, I would say the ride is really from weak intermediate on up.

    Steve: Carolynn and I will try to be on time tonight.

    As for lights:
    One word... MagicShine from Geoman. Cheap, bright... etc..

    I second the MagicShine light. Great brightness and cheap. If you get two seasons, you are ahead of the game, but you will likely get more. I went through Geoman and they were great. Our group gets a better deal with a coupon they offer us. Send me an email. stevenrossi -at- rocketmail -dot- com

    Big groups lately. 16 riders two weeks ago and 14 last Monday. Varying abilities. Accommodating all speeds. Ready to go for 5:45. See you tomorrow. Steve

    This Week CANCELED!

    Piles of rain on half-frozen ground... Woods are off-limits for a day or two.
    Ride Canceled.

    With the COLDER temps, rides are now Intermediate+ pace.

    See you next week. Steve
