Step-Up Ride for Dec 15th, 8:00 AM Scheduled Start
Posted on 12/13/2018 4:25 PM
Step-Up Ride for Saturday, December 15th, the scheduled start time is 8:00 AM, but we'll probably do a delayed start. The weather forecast for Saturday is OK -- temp 39 deg at 8 AM (wind chill 35 degrees), with a 0% chance of rain Saturday morning and winds out of the NW at 6 mph. With the rain so far today (Thursday) and now scheduled for Friday, we will bypass the park. Please check this blog and/or the PBA facebook page on Saturday AM. I'll post the start time by 6:30 AM Saturday morning, once the actual Saturday temps are known. If the actual temps are colder than now predicted and it doesn't look like we'll hit the PBA developmental ride-minimum (40 degrees) by 9:30 AM, I'll cancel, but with the forecast now we'll likely get the ride in with a start of 8:30 or 9 AM.
The Step-Up Ride start area is at the Gulledge Elementary School (west side Preston Meadow just south of Legacy). If we are a go, please sign-in by 15 minutes prior to start for the pre-ride safety briefing so we'll be able to start as scheduled. (As always, cancellation announcements for all developmental rides -- of which Step-Up is one -- put out by Ron Shome, the PBA Ride Coordinator, supersedes whatever I might be considering or posting, so look for anything from him as well). Please have checked and aired up your bike prior to the pre-ridebriefing and remember helmet, water, and tire repair kit. The Step-Up route is posted on the RidewithGPS PBA Club Route Library under the title "SU_31.3_AllenHeights_OakPtPark".
