Hi all, well I have no idea what the weather is going to do so here's the plan.We will go ahead with our first Spoke n'Hot ride as planned. So come to the U of R parking lot 15 at 6pm prepared to ride at 6:30. If the weather goes bad, well, we'll deal with it then.
Tonight is more about organization anyway, we have all the jerseys and swag bags ready to go and we need to decide what Groups you will be riding in! We will be there by 5:45 and will start handing out gear as people arrive. By 6:30 or so all our returning riders will be in their Groups with their Ride Leaders. We'll then be looking at the new Spoke riders and assigning them to Groups based on their experience level.
We'll ask all sorts of personal questions designed to help us figure out roughly where you should be.
Have you ridden in a paceline before?
Previous cycling experience?
10 km run time?
What kind of bike and how long have you owned it?
We'll put you in a Group and see how it goes. The Ride Leader will be working with you and will help you decide if the Group is appropriate for you. The Ride leaders will spend some time on Group etiquette, hand signals etc.. then go for a ride or do some Skills and Drills or both! It's chaotic but fun. See you in an hour.
Mark and Theresa
I tend to be the noisy one, Theresa and the Ride Leaders are the real story.
