Saturday B-Group Depot Road Ride

Gang,

The weather forecasts vary depending on phone applications but, look iffy for Saturday. We'll follow this pattern. If they still look bad Friday night, I may post a cancellation. Otherwise revert to the default planned ride if not posted otherwise. Please join us for another early morning, quite road ride.

Date: Saturday, June 16th
Time: 8 am start 
Place: Clarkston Depot Park
Pace: 18-20 mph cruise. 
Duration: ~45 mile with specific route determined by those present.

This is a no-drop ride. But, please be comfortable riding in close quarters of a pace line. Respect fellow riders and rulles of the road. Watch out for each other. Check your bike ahead of the ride for mechanical issues.

Thanks!

Polly Ann ride Sunday June 3, 10:00 am.

Looks like another great day for a ride with temps at a more reasonable 80 degrees.  Last Sunday was a hot one!  Thanks to all that came out and rode in the heat.  The ride to Imlay City was fun and the Mexican food was some of the best I've ever had.  Well worth the trip! 

Meeting at Evergreens Coffee Shop in Oxford.  Some folks riding to Leonard others to Dryden. 

Hope to see you!

Pace: 18-20 mph cruise. 
Duration: ~55 mile with ~7% undulating hill climb during the last 5 miles. Very challenging...
