Anyone planning on attending? I am considering it, but I don't know the route. I am assuming they use the Military Road route but where else do they go? Are there send offs based on paces?

Slowtwitcha: There's usually an A, B, and C group, following a route sheet, rolling out together, then splitting off. You should join the fast-twitching A group.

Nice turnout tonight of clubbers, and everyone else--maybe 225 in all--for the ride and bbq. Sweltering. Next free grill and beer fest is Tuesday, July 5, with regular hill rides every Tues at 6:30 until then.

Oof. Those hills in 97 degrees will seem so much more ridiculous. :)

Be there or be [ ].

The shop posted around noon today that today's final ride, beer, and bbq of the year are on:


"Conte's of Arlington/Freshbikes
Yes, the Tuesday Night Ride is definitely on-rain or shine."

just posted - ride cancelled. rescheduled for next week.

Conte's of Arlington/Freshbikes
Upon further review, there will be NO RIDE TONIGHT. Sorry for the misinformation earlier. The forecast is just way too gloomy for a safe and enjoyable ride and the setup for our friends from Baja Fresh would be less than ideal. THE RIDE AND BBQ IS RESCHEDULED FOR NEXT TUESDAY, SEP.13TH AT 630PM.

Looks like they rescheduled again - now it's Sept 20th with a new start time of 6:00PM

BBQ Ride Postponed
Due to inclement weather, we have postponed our BBQ ride for two weeks.
So - next week, the ride continues with a TIME CHANGE.....the ride begins at 6 PM from Mosaic Park.
Two weeks from today (9/20) the BBQ ride, sponsored by Shimano Ultegra Di2, occurs. Start time for the ride...6 PM.

This was posted on their Facebook page this afternoon:

TUESDAY NIGHT RIDE UPDATE! Tonight the ride will leave from the shop at 6pm. We will be heading out 30 minutes early due to it getting dark a bit earlier these days. We are also still planning to have the final BBQ ride for the season on September 20, also leaving at 6pm. Please email us or call the shop with any questions. Thanks and we hope to see all of you this evening!

Weather looks doable for final beer/bbq/bike of year, not necessarily in that order.
