Destination Breakfast Ride
Just how important is exercise, anyway?
Our ride leader knows:
|Distance:||30-45 miles||Duration:||2.5 hours|
|Pace:||13-15 mph||Rest stops:||1|
|Drop/No Drop:||No Drop|
Description: The Sunday Destination / Breakfast Ride combines a ride to local destinations or points of interest not on a typical PBA route, and a stop at a breakfast restaurant along the way. The rides are “no drop” and the plan is to keep the distances between 30 to 45 miles and the average speed between 13 and 15 miles per hour. For this ride the journey is as important as the destination and I hope we can enjoy a casual ride with a variety of locations, neighborhoods, restaurants, scenery, topography, and camaraderie. A sense of adventure is important as we will discover routes together. While I will research routes in advance, do expect a wrong turn or three. I look forward to your feedback after each ride to improve the routes. Depending on the destination, the starting location might be someplace other than the Coit and Spring Creek / PBA parking lot so please note the starting location for each ride.
We follow all PBA and Texas Transportation Code rules and laws; stop at all stop signs, travel single file on all two lane roads, signal when turning, calling out road conditions, etc. As the largest road cycling club in the North Texas area, we are stewards of the road and it is our responsibility to be good cyclists.
This is a no drop ride, which means ‘no rider left behind’. We will help if tires go flat, or minor mechanical failures occur, such that you will know how to do it for yourself if/when these situations occur. Please come prepared with extra tubes and a pump or C02 rig to inflate and plenty of water to keep you hydrated.
Before each ride there is a mandatory sign in sheet and pre-ride instructions that last approximately 10 minutes, so please arrive with enough time to get your self squared away and participate in the pre-ride instructions.
