August 27 Carroll Ride CANCELLED
Hugh has cancelled the Thursday August 27 night ride from Carroll High School so not to conflict with that night's scheduled time trial. Rides will continue through September but the distance will be reduced due to earlier sunset times.
The August Time Trial on August 27 meets at 424 and Hwy 101 and starts at 6:30 with riders rolling out every 30 seconds thereafter. The course is a 5 miles out and back making this a 10 mile time trial. The turn around will be at the Ohio shaped Antwerp sign and will be manned by an Antwerp Police Officer.

Sweetwater Ride Notes
by John Grabowski
A few notes for those meeting up for the weekend tour at Sweetwater this Saturday. We’ll park and gather near the Service entrance in the front - not the main entrance, but the entrance midway down the building under the Sweetwater sign (let’s park away from the building please). The building will already be open (it will open at 8am). I’m sure that Sweetwater’s maintenance staff would appreciate it if we take off our road shoes rather than scuffing up the floors.
Restrooms, water, and wi-fi are all available, as are refreshments available for purchase, including bottled beverages (milk, juice, sports drinks, energy drinks, iced tea), fountain drinks, bananas, a small variety of candy / trail mix / granola bars, yogurt, etc.
There is also a coffee shop / cafe (the Crescendo Cafe), which will be open from 8am-5pm. They have espresso and coffee drinks (they actually use a very cool high-end espresso “Modbar” system that was invented right here in Fort Wayne), as well as protein “Fit Frapps” (130 calories and 21 grams of protein) greek yogurt parfaits, muffins, bagels, and pastries.
While there is a cafeteria on site (the Downbeat Diner), it won’t be serving breakfast. It will, however, be open with a short-order menu from 11am-4pm in case you’re hungry after your ride.
Checkout in the diner is self-service, and much easier if you’re paying via a credit card, so you may want to bring a card instead of cash.
