Well the weekend is pretty much over which means that tomorrow night we're riding!
This will be our first ride from the Turvey Centre at Evraz Steel. For our new riders just head north on Albert st, go under the Hwy 11 overpass and take your first left onto Armour road then your first right into the Turvey parking lot. Meet at 6'ish and on the road by 6:30 promptly.
The forecast is not fabulous, Env Cda is calling for a 40% chance of showers so, as usual, I will be keeping an eye on it during the day and I will update you at 4pm if required.
The plan for tomorrow..
This will be our first ride. For some of you, it will be your first time on the highway, so your Ride Leaders will be spending a little more time on the pre ride briefing. This ride will be all about getting used to each other and becoming comfortable with riding in a Group.What I want to see is smart riding, good group etiquette and lots of smiles. I'm not too concerned about the pace, so you will be going out for 45 minutes and back for 40 minutes! Sunset is at 8:31 so as long as you are all back in the parking lot by 8 I'll be happy.
A couple of you have inquired about changing Groups. Hopefully I have replied to you all. I expect that I will have to do some more shuffling around tomorrow but it will be a lot simpler than last week.
So that's it for now, in closing though, I do want to mention that I want to see all riders equipped with a flashing rear light. Freddy has a really good selection of lights and they are very reasonably priced. Hey, does anyone remember the old light set with that crappy generator on the rear wheel that slowed you down? I'm getting old...:)
I tend to be the noisy one, Theresa and the Ride Leaders are the real story.
