How to get ride updates on Twitter

3/18 DB Lite to Grapevine Dam, 50 miles, 8 am

6 days 2 hours ago #24749

South winds and this ride to Grapevine Dam defeated me a couple of months ago, so I want to try it again:
ridewithgps.com/routes/18605695

As always, if some group members want to come back via Windhaven, go for it!...but I don't know that I would be in that group.

As for the other particulars...

  • It's almost 27 miles to the rest stop (Bethel @ 121).
  • Be there early enough to get everything ready and get signed in by 7:50 so we can get the introductions and comments out of the way and be on our way by 8:00.
  • We'll average somewhere in our 16-17.5 mph range. Expect the lower half of that range (but I surprised myself last week).
  • If group size is large enough we may go out in two groups, and the faster folks may want their own group after the rest stop.
  • As always, have a SAG plan and be able to find your way back if we lose you, because yes, this is a "drop" ride. However the ride will wait for mechanicals and for riders who get caught by lights, but only if we know they got caught.
  • Please have a copy of the route, either printed or in a Garmin, in case the group splits or you get off the back (or the front) and need to find your way home. For those who want a turn by turn or printed map RideWithGPS will let you do that.
  • Help up front = good karma and helps me finish with the group.
