Step-Up Ride for Saturday, October 20th, the start time is at 8:00 AM.   (I'll be away from the computer the rest of Thurs and Friday, so I'm putting out my ride note a little early this week).  The weather forecast for Saturday is not good (again!) -- temps in the high 50s, 5 mph winds out of the Northwest, but with a 60% chance of rain, so stay alert for cancellation announcements on this space and the PBA Group Facebook page.  If rain does come in I'll post that announcement by 6:30 AM Saturday.  If you don't see an announcement by 6:45 AM then I'm headed to the start area and we'll call a go/no-go from there. (As always, cancellation announcements 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). The Step-Up Ride start area is at the Gulledge Elementary School (west side Preston Meadow just south of Legacy).  Please sign-in by 7:45 AM for the pre-ride safety briefing so we'll be able to start as scheduled at 8:00 AM. Our goal is 13-14 mph avg.  The last 6 months we've come in at 13.0-13.9 mph avg.   Please have checked and aired up your bike prior to the 7:45 AM briefing time and remember helmet, water, and tire repair kit.
