Some of us did indeed do the rain route. We left Starbucks around 7:40 and would have turned eastbound from Jupiter to Renner a little less than an hour after that.

Did you decide on the rain route? I was going to intercept you on Bethany, but opted for a solo ride. I think I might have saw the group heading east on Renner just at K avenue.

There is some rain out towards Princeton so we may switch to a rain route. Decision will be made at the ride start.

Last Saturday ride of the year with a 7 am start time!!

The winds favor an east route yet again so this time we'll go to Princeton. Sure, it's not a 5-star rest stop, but hey, it's Princeton!

As for the other particulars...

  • It's around 28 miles to the scheduled rest stop (store at 380 & 2nd Street). It shouldn't be so hot this week but we can always find a second stop in Allen if anyone needs it.
  • Be there early enough to get everything ready and get signed in by 6:50 so we can get the introductions and comments out of the way and be on our way by 7:00.
  • The group should average somewhere in our 16-17.5 mph range.
  • If group size is large enough we may go out in two groups, and we'll potentially do speed-based groups after the rest stop.
  • As always, have a SAG plan and be able to find your way back if we lose you, because yes, this is a "drop" ride. However the ride will wait for mechanicals and for riders who get caught by lights, but only if we know they got caught.
  • Please have a copy of the route, either printed or in a Garmin, in case the group splits or you get off the back (or the front) and need to find your way home. For those who want a turn by turn or printed map RideWithGPS will let you do that.
  • Help up front is necessary. If you rode with me the last couple of weeks you understand...though last Sunday showed promise!
I'll strive to update the post by 6:00 am if the ever-so-slight chance of rain does materialize.

Hope to see you all in the morning!
