March Post Breakfast Ride Information
If anyone is up for a post breakfast ride see an optional route map at the bottom. Groups usually take off around 10am.
The route is a no host self-guided GPS ride, as the ride is self-guided join a group or lead one.
A group size of 4 - 6 riders with about a maximum of 8 is optimal, grouping by bike size or desired pace is also beneficial if possible. Of course it’s all about fun, camaraderie and being safe. Some groups will focus on completing the route, others will just relax and ride to their cut off time and head home.
Ride etiquette - When I lead a group I don’t stop for lunch, I have several nature break stops and a stop midway for snacks or a sandwich I bring with me out in the country, then of course there are the planned fuel stops. I stop at every non-obvious corner and wait for the entire group, there is NEVER a need to ride above your comfort level to keep up, we won’t leave you, I encourage riders to spread out to avoid the dust. The daisy chain method also works well, especially when its extremely dusty to keep the group even more spread out, the rider in front makes sure the rider behind makes the corner and so on until the sweep rider makes the corner. As long as the ride in front takes responsibility for the rider behind no one gets lost.
