This ride fits in between the PBA Novice and Step Up levels. The distance is almost 20 miles with a pace of 13 to 14 mph, but rolling speed will vary depending on the wind. There are a few short hills on the back stretch, but we do wait for everyone to catch up. The ride starts from Tri Shop in West Plano at 8 AM Saturday mornings. As with all PBA rides, you need a helmet, water, and should bring tools to change a flat tube should that be necessary.
