It's Chili Ride time!!! Join us for our favorite Tuesday night ride through spring and summer!
-C/D FCC training pace (16-25+mph with no obligation to regroup or wait)
-Fully charged front and rear lights are mandatory on this ride! We ride back at dusk/dark.
-Meets at 5:15. Please be geared up, checked in and ready for the pre-ride talk at 5:25 so we can roll right at 5:30!
*There isn't a lot of regrouping on this ride, but everyone usually briefly stops at the Tivy Market! It's a great training ride to help build your fitness and speed throughout summer!
**All riders on C/D rides should be familiar with the route and be comfortable riding on their own if separated from the group. We love seeing riders pushing themselves and just encourage riders to bring a friend if you're not sure you can hang on to the group's pace so you aren't riding alone!
All riders must sign the annual 2018 waiver! Save time and sign the waiver online so all you have to do is check in before the ride! https://smartwaiver.com/w/5a3c4a03baf1b/web/
Location: Jefferson Elementary School (on Annadale just west of Newmark in Sanger)
