And so we are on the cusp, the edge, the precipice, the beginning of yet another evening, central Ohio cycling season. Ain't life grand! As before, we have the deep south option (Canal Winchester) or the land where raw power resides (New Albany). Both 6:00pm starts but a different philosophy for the two Tuesday rides. For New Albany, this is the route we will follow: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19828158 until light permits us to go longer with....
....this one: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19828105 We will then switch back and forth between the two routes. Officially, this is a B paced ride. We will attack some of the hills but regroup at the top. An "A" cyclist is welcome to join but respect the intent of the pace. Use it as a recovery ride or a ride to get the legs moving and ready for the Thursday New Albany ride. All "C" cyclists are welcome too. Know the route, hang in there as long as you can for the cardio benefit and then drop back and group with someone. The first ride is April 4th. Gus Cook is the master of ceremony.

Ric Noland of "The Cyclist Connection" is again volunteering to lead the Canal Winchester ride which has a new start location, "BrewDog". I'm not sure of the exact location but you can figure it out by zooming in the route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19832745 As before, there is the A route shown above with shorter B: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19832806 and C: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19832849 options. After the ride, quite the unfair advantage, free beer is available. On the other hand, frequently the Tuesday New Albany post ride experience includes free food from Kristie. I will, not that anyone cares of course, usually attend the NA ride while making the occasional visit to Canal to check out those troops. Have a safe and great season.
