DB Rec 8/19/17 *6:00 a.m.* Start for 75 mile - 7:00 a.m. for 55-65

Because the temp and humidity forecast is for an equatorial jungle as opposed to North Texas, and following the wise precedent of my cycling Swami, Ron Shome, we will start our adventure at 6:00 a.m. This ride will be in three legs giving folks a 55, 65, and 75 mile riding option depending on the condition of their legs and heat tolerance.

Be in parking lot at 5:55 a.m. for sign in to do this 10 MILE ROUTE

We'll then return to the DB REC parking lot location to join those who want to ride this 55 MILE Southwest ROUTE

The 55 mile route winds up at Preston Meadow and Spring Creek where those who want to do an extra 10 miles in order to total up to 65 or 75 can proceed strait on Preston Meadow and follow this FINAL LEG while those who wish to can turn right on Spring Creek and head to the barn and the refreshing beverage of their choice.

6am Instructions for 65 or 75 miles *** Lights Required ***
Meet, ready to roll by 5:55am for a quick speech and sign in at our usual location. We'll start riding at 6am sharp. Please bring an extra water bottle and snack as your first rest stop is the parking lot when we return about 6:45am. The next stop for us will be 23 miles later (our mile ~34).

7am Instructions for 55 or 65 miles
If you prefer to start at 7am and ride 55 or 65 miles, please gather near Swami Ron's blue Honda Odyssey and sign in. The sign in sheet should be at the rear window wiper blade. We should be there about 6:45am, and we'll have our full pre-ride gab fest.

Here is the WEATHER

This ride is about distance and endurance, not speed. Our average will be between 15.5 and 16.5 mph for each leg. While it is a drop ride, I never leave anyone behind without confirmation of a riding partner or SAG plan.
