Touring / Tuesday/Thursday Carroll Rides
« Last post by HughDog on August 04, 2014, 08:50:12 PM »
Because of a general lack of interest from new riders and the fact that the regular attendees for the Tuesday and Thursday night rides are near top form by now, the Tuesday and Thursday night Carroll High School rides through August and September will be used as training rides for anyone looking to participate in the Huntington Challenge in late September.  The pace of both rides will be from the low to mid 20s mph depending on who shows, and both rides will include work on close riding in a paceline.  Anyone is still welcome to attend the rides, but be prepared for a very hard pace.

Since the Facebook group was changed from an open group to a closed group, those without Facebook cannot see posts so this makes the forum more important than ever.
