sHOP Ride, Thursday 6/16

Feeling fast? Join us Thursday night at 615pm for the Hour of Power. This ride places an emphasis on training, bike handling, teamwork and riding in a paceline. But be warned: this is a ride for experienced riders only. Speeds on the flats will be 25-30mph at times and the end-of-ride average will be greater than 20mph.

We’ll be mixing things up a bit tonight: rather than riding the same route as one big group, we will divide into two groups and enjoy a little friendly competition. One group will ride clockwise, the other will ride counter-clockwise. The first group to return to the shop with ALL riders from their team wins. Each route will include a four mile warm up (approx. to Ministerial Road) after which point it is game on.
