9/16 DB Lite to Rowlett 53 miles @ 7:30 am

2 months 5 days ago #25435

The winds are back out of the south and the heat is back in play. I've put together something a little different for the ride to Rowlett, mostly different on the return portion (and the fact that we don't actually have a rest stop in Rowlett).

As for the other items of interest...

  • Since it has been so nice the last two weeks the expected heat may have more of an effect on some of us, so we'll have two rest stops. It's around 18 miles to rest stop #1 (7-Eleven at Country Club and Brown St. in Wylie) and rest stop #2 is around mile 39.5 (another 7-Eleven, at Campbell and Murphy Rd, barely in Garland).
  • Be there early enough to get everything ready and get signed in by 7:20 so we can get the introductions and comments out of the way and be on our way by 7:30.
  • The group should average somewhere in our 16-17.5 mph range.
  • If group size is large enough and we have enough ride leaders we may go out in two groups.
  • 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.
  • Helping up front makes for good karma!

Hope to see you all in the morning!
