Step-Up Ride for Nov. 18th, 8 AM Start

3 months 1 week ago #25592

At this writing (Friday, 5:30 AM, Nov 17th) the weather forecast for Saturday morning, November 18th, across the ride area is not great -- The Weather Channel has it as only slight chance of rain now through Saturday morning with ride-time temps in the mid-60s, but the winds Saturday will be very strong out of the NW at 16 - 23 mph. The PBA Ride Coordinator at his discretion might cancel all rides if the winds come in anything much more than the current prediction, so check the PBA website, Saturday Step-Up Ride page, as well as the PBA facebook page, for any delay/cancellation notice that will be posted Saturday morning. If you don't see a cancellation notice by 6:30 AM, then I'm planning to be at the start area and we'll call a go/no-go from there.

The start area is in the parking lot of the Stonewood Professional Office Park (33 deg 03' 29" N 96 deg 46' 25" W). This is just to the west of the shopping center at the northwest corner of Coit and Spring Creek. Please meet and sign-in at 7:45 AM for the pre-ride briefing ready to go so we can ride off at 8 AM. Please dress for conditions and remember water, helmet, tire repair kit, and air-up your tires and check your bike before the pre-ride briefing. With the winds, we'll plan right now to do a slightly reduced 32 mile Step-Up route at an average of about 13 MPH. Step-Up avg speeds for the last few months of rides on the normal 33.5 mile route have been between 13.0 and 13.8 mph.
