Step-Up Ride for Dec 9th, 9:30 AM Start

2 months 2 weeks ago #25673

At this writing (Thursday, 3:30 PM, Dec 7th) the weather for Saturday morning, Dec 9th, across the ride area has it sunny with a 0% chance of rain, but there will be low temps and moderate winds. Making the trade off between temps in the 30s at 8 AM, and winds getting stronger as the sun gets higher has lead me to set a start time of 9:30 AM for the Step-Up ride on Saturday morning. The predicted temp at that start time is 44 degrees with a 38 degree wind chill. As always should reality turn out to be much worse than what's now predicted, check the Step-Up page on the PBA Ride Forums webpage for any delay/cancellation notice that will be posted by 7:45 AM Saturday morning. If you don't see a change/cancellation notice by 8 AM, then I'm planning to be at the start area by 9 AM and we'll call a go/no-go for 9:30 AM 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 9:15 AM for the pre-ride briefing ready to go so we can ride off at 9:30 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. We'll plan on riding the usual 33.5 mile Step-Up route at an overall average between 13 and 14 mph. Average speeds for the last few months of rides on the normal 33.5 mile route have been between 13.0 and 13.8 mph.
