Fall/Winter/Spring Group Training Ride

Postby B.L. » Fri Sep 10, 2010 9:56 am


Over the past 2 winters we have had a Saturday morning ride out of Loantaka Park in Morristown, which ran into March. It has evolved into a great regional bike racer group ride. Some people have mentioned that they would like to have the ride start in the fall and continue through the winter. With the lack of a non-club affiliated group ride in the Morristown area, it would be great if this ride goes year round. Maybe this will be the first step. Through the fall, the ride will start at 9:00 AM. Beginning 12/04/2010, the start time will be moved to 10:00 AM.

The ride starts and ends out of Loantaka Park, South Street in Morristown. The loop is 40 miles. There are a couple of spots where we wait briefly to regroup, but we generally will not be waiting for dropped riders. This ride is not affiliated with any club or team. Ride will be every Saturday morning through to March (depending on the spring races). Here's a link to the loop in case you want to jump in along the way:

We'll start Saturday 09/11/2010 at 9:00 AM. Please forward to anybody who may be interested in a ride such as this.


PS If someone could please post this on Facebook I would appreciate it.
