We are ready to roll. Ready to explode....well at least jettison, into areas east of New Albany. More t come soon.
The Cycling Club's Summer Solstice ride is today! IMPORTANT POINT: The B route below is correct and different from the B route on the Cycling Club's web site. Big thanks to Jeff Schluep for bringing this to my attention. Depending on turnout, we likely will have two B groups, a B+ and regular B. There has been some grumbling in the ranks that needs addressed: Don't be one of "those" guys! Ya know, the guy who loudly pronounces prior to the ride that he has "Y" event this ...Saturday so is dropping back a group or two and then can't keep the ego in check or is completely oblivious to the surroundings. For "those" guys a couple of pointers. 1) If you are co-leading a double pace line and your partner quickly fades; YOU ARE RIDING TOO HARD! 2) If you are pulling a single pace line, wave to come off the front and discover there is no one behind you and wonder why; DON'T BE SO STUPID. YOU ARE RIDING TOO HARD! 3) Don't say to members of the group their bikes are designed to go a bunch faster. 4) it is bad form to be the first up a climb. Gift climbs to the real and deserving members of the slower group with which you have chosen to ride. 5) Don't grumble because the slower groups regroup more often then the faster groups with whom you usually ride. Above all else; Don't be a Richard Cranium when riding with a slower group. Have a great and safe ride tonight. 😉
