Vance Cyclists! It’s spring riding season! Our first official season ride will start at 0800 this Saturday, 28 March (sorry for the wrong date earlier) from the Cleveland Trailhead. Hope to see you there. Ride and pace will depend on the riders present, but we’ve typically done around 20 miles on these.
Saturday Ride at 0800 tomorrow, Cleveland Trailhead. For the rest of the season Saturday rides will start here, same time same place, and midweek rides will start on Wednesdays at the Vance fitness center at 1730.
Race The Rail is this Saturday! The event starts at 0900 in Watonga OK. There’s still time to sign up: http://www.racetherail.com/
Hope to see you there, weather’s getting nice.
Usual time usual place, Saturday at 0800 we’ll meet at the Cleveland Trailhead for a ride, riders present get to pick the route. Race the Rail is next week; Sign up here! http://www.racetherail.com/
Due to various conflicts it looks like most of the regulars are out for the evening; still, if you’re up for a ride, rally point/time is 1730 at the Vance Fitness Center. Keep in mind it’s getting dark around 1930 these days.
Saturday is our Family Ride with Vance Family Housing. All Rides start at the family housing office. 0800 is the Bike Parade in Family Housing (decorate your ride!) for under 12, and 0900 is the 12 and up ride. Between the rides we’ll do a quick training about helmet fitting, road safety and bike maintenance. There’s rain coming on the weekend, but we’re optimistic that it will hold off long enough.
You have noticed that the sun is setting earlier each day. And with less daylight in the evenings the Wednesday Ride will continue as long as it can. So if you are looking for the ride, it will be locked in at 5:30 PM and meet at the Vance Fitness Center. Please use your own judgement on whether there is enough daylight to ride safely.
This Wednesday the sun will set at 7:37 PM. And the forecast calls for a warm 91° with South West winds around 10 MPH. Will the chosen route go to Pioneer? Come on out and help us determine it.
Burr! Where did Summer go? Sunrise on Saturday will be at 7:12. So let’s meet at the Cleveland Trail Head at 8 AM. The forecasted winds will be light so the attending group of riders can determine the route. With this cool temperatures, maybe a cafe stop will be in order. Ride along and help us choose your favorite place.
As usual we are meeting at the Vance Fitness Center at 5:30 PM. And as always, if you don’t have access we’ll find you at the Visitor Center just outside the Main Gate. The folks who attend will choose the route. The weather should be fairly nice. Click the image above to get current forecast. And they say the sun will set at 7:48 PM. See you there.
