Might want to bring a jacket for this one.. but let’s go riding!

Headed west this Saturday. As usual, the longer loop will roll out in groups of ~15 based on cruising speeds. Typically, 18mph+.

There will be the ~16mph long loop option again this week.

The shorter loop cruises together at 15-16mph.

Here are the routes:

Longer loop (32.6 miles at varying speeds): https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28768481

Shorter loop (24.2 miles at 15-16 mph): https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28768497

Saturday rides roll each week at 8 a.m. Helmets required. Bring water, tubes, pump, etc.

Hope to see you there!
