Hey folks. If there is interest, I am thinking of doing an easier no drop ride out of Georgetown this Saturday. We will keep the pace to 16-18 or so. We’ll go out to River Road and cut back through the neighborhoods with a focus on being a steady proper pace line with good smooth technique. It will be like 35 miles or so. If folks have a few more miles in ‘em, we can do some hot laps at Haines.
If you haven’t done much pace-lining other than some mornings at Haines Point, or are unsure if you can handle the normal Saturday rides, then this would be a good time to come out. No drops, no pressure, just a nice ride.
We'll go over some of the basic tenements of group rides, and then we’ll practice it until we look like PROs. I don’t know about you guys, but I went years before someone explicitly told me what was expected from me on a group ride. I found it really helpful and it generally made a sexier person.
Let me know if you are interested. Acotts1517@gmail.com.
We’ll head out of Georgetown at 8am.
It looks like this niche is already filled with the pensive pedalers. Good to see.
So unless I hear from 3 or 4 people who specifically want to do a ride like I described, assume it aint happening.
