I'm in for tomorrow. The weather looks fine, so I'm planning on the normal 8:10 Hill/8:30 Gtown. Anyone else in?
I'm in. Looking to go to the T if anyone else is interested.
I'm in. I'm so out of shape.
In for 8:30 in Georgetown.
I'm in for Georgetown at 8:30. First time Gtown rider, where's the meet up point? Do most people ride tri or road bikes, (so I can equip accordingly), and how far out is the T?
Welcome to the ride! PNC Bank parking lot at Wisconsin/M - be there before 830 to ensure you don't miss the train coming from Cap Hill.
Riders on our Club ride use both tri bikes and road bikes (just don't try that on a cyclist team/club ride), but we welcome both (however, there is a stipulation).
If you ride your tri bike, adhere very closely to cycling etiquette, chiefly these rules:
-Do not ride on aero bars while in the paceline/drafting - the only exception is if you are pulling.
-If you're behind a group and want to be in aero, give a large gap in case of unexpected braking from the riders in front of you.
Generally, don't ride like a triathlete while in a group - maintain good lines and don't ride all over the road. Be predictable. Don't ride 3-abreast. Keep to the right. Communicate. Safety, safety, safety.
Easy, breezy, lemon-squeezy.
Final Freshbikes/Ron Benedict spin is this week, so should be a bunch more out there next week for the springtime.
Have a good ride! I'm doing the club duathlon. Catch you another week!
I'm in. Will join from the hill. First time joining from the hill.
I'll be waiting for the Hill people at the corner of Independence and 4th St SW, around 8:15am.
