TNLR - 22 November
By Susan Noble
Posted: 2022-11-21T18:33:27Z

Happy week of Thanksgiving! The weather looks like it is going to cooperate on Tuesday night, and we should be able to have a really nice ride. It will be chilly, but the temperatures should not drop below the 50's until well after our ride is over.


IT WILL BE DARK WHEN WE START AND STILL DARK WHEN WE FINISH!!!! LIGHTS ARE REQUIRED!!!!!


Tuesday Night Ladies Ride will roll this Tuesday from the original Ladies Ride Location! We will park near the old TriShop - which is now an empty store. We park on the NE Corner of Windhaven and Communications -- Between the empty store and Pinstack. The best way to get to the parking location is to turn into the parking lot from Communications.


The best place to park is behind the building facing PinStack.


Cafe Gecko has graciously offered the use of their bathrooms before the ride for any ladies that need to powder their nose!!!


Tuesday Night Ladies Ride TNLR 8 November

6PM -- Pre-ride Check-In 5:45pm

6101 Windhaven Pkwy #100

Plano, TX 75093

Pace: 14-15.5 mph

Route: TNLR Winter Route 2022

24 Miles

No Drop

LIGHTS REQUIRED!!!!!


Special Notes:

This ride is designed to get folks comfortable riding in the dark. If you are comfortable riding in the dark, and would like to continue riding at a more challenging pace -- The PBA Tuesday Night Coed Rides (TNCR) offer an A, B, and C pace. That ride leaves from Carpenter Park in Plano and more information is available at Planobicycle.org.


The TNLR will ride to the slowest rider; however, we do expect all riders to be able to maintain a 14 mph average. We do not plan to go fast, but slower averages in the dark can be as scary in the dark as faster pace groups.


We will resume our various pace groups, as well as a more hilly route in March 2023.


Please wear appropriately reflective nighttime attire.


The Ride will Roll at 6PM. Please arrive by 5:45 for pre-ride housekeeping.
