Development Ride

Ride Time: 6:00 PM.

Distance: about 30 miles

Ride Leader: Steve Pequignot

Location: Jefferson Middle School, 5303 Wheelock Road

Pace: B Group 18/19 MPH

Route: Flat, on excellent roads, east of New Haven to the Woodburn area. This is a no-drop, no-stop ride. Group B riders are expected to be able to maintain a minimum pace of 18 MPH, a little slower into a headwind and a little faster with a tailwind. This ride will focus on developing group riding skills, i.e., hand signs, various types of drafting, single pace-line, dual pace-line, echelon, "wagon wheel" rotation ( ie. rotating paceline ), hiding in the peloton, utilizing the most efficient draft for the conditions and the group.

Ride begins Wednesday, June 10, 2015 and runs through August 26, 2015. This ride will be canceled if weather conditions are not favorable for a safe group ride. Check the club's Facebook page for cancellations. All riders must wear helmets. It is recommended that all riders use a red flashing blinker light on this ride.
