We hope that you all are enjoying this amazing weekend. We're putting together the plans for this week's rides. As always, check in on the CALENDAR and ROUTES pages for all the info on the rides.
Also, the weather looks great for this week and especially on Monday! 90º!!!
Here's what's in store for this week:
Our normal group rides start with both an A and B group ride. As usual, the A group is a very fast pace and you should know the route prior to leaving the shop as we rarely regroup during the ride. Our pace on these rides are upwards of 20pmh average and are determined by the overall group. The B group is our "recovery" and "no-drop" ride. The pace is again determined by the group, but will remain somewhere around 17-18mph average. We will regroup at various points throughout the ride.
We will be gathering at the East Longmeadow shop around 5PM and both groups will roll out promptly at 5:30PM. We are still battling the daylight, so the length of the rides will be shorter to start and will build as we have more daylight.
All the routes for the rides are available on our MapMyRide.com page and on our ROUTES page as well. For those of you with Garmin bike computers, you will be able to download the routes via our MapMyRide.com page.
Here's the routes for Monday's rides:
RIDE WITH ROYCE! CEC ambassador and team rider, Royce, is going to be leading out a group ride from the East Longmeadow shop every Tuesday at 5:30PM. Just like our Monday rides, we will be gathering at the shop at 5PM and rolling out promptly at 5:30PM. This is going to be a B group ride, the average pace will be around 18mph, and it will be a "no-drop" ride.
We'll post the route for the ride in the next couple of days, so stay tuned!
IT's LADIES night!!! Our women's specific rides will be kicking off on Wednesday. This is an all ability and "no-drop" ride. CEC ambassador and team rider(and team manager) Jen Audia will be leading these rides. Stay tuned to the blog and our Facebook page for more info.
For our first mountain bike ride of the season we are going to Robinson State Park. We will be meeting at the parking lot next to 106 High St. in Agawam around 5:30. We'll roll into the woods no later than 6PM. As we only have a small amount of daylight we are asking everyone to bring their lights so we can stay out a little past sunset. If not everyone has lights, we'll plan a loop that will get us back before sunset.
If anyone has any questions, just shoot us an email or send us a message on our Facebook page. See you all out there!
