How to get ride updates on Twitter

11/11 DB Lite to Rowlett 51-ish miles @ 8:00 am

1 week 4 days ago #25585

The winds are back out of the southeast and the group just went to WRL so we'll go to Rowlett instead. I am not as worried as some others are about the traffic on Renner due to the closure on US-75, so we'll just try it and see.

As for the other items of interest...

  • The rest stop is our usual RaceTrac at Lakeview and Chiesa.
  • There are a couple of tweaks to the course, including one set of neighborhood streets I've never used.
  • 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.
  • The group should average somewhere in our 16-17.5 mph range. I was slow last Sunday. We'll see.
  • If group size is large enough and we have enough ride leaders we may go out in two groups.
  • 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.
  • Helping up front makes for good karma!

Hope to see you all in the morning!
