A very BIG Thank you to Phil Gormley for leading out the pack last Saturday and also to Cliff Wolf for volunteering. Thank you all those who stepped up to help out this ride. Without you these rides do not happen so thank you.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR NEXT SATURDAYS RIDE JUNE 18th
We need leaders and sweepers especially for the C riders this weekend. We need volunteers to step up and help out across the board on all rides…. who else among our members that will step up and help out???
Please take a moment to thank the volunteers who step up on weekly bases and lead and help out the rides. Without these volunteers the rides would not be possible.….
SERIOUSLY….these members are stepping up week after week to lead the rides and we would appreciate if other members would step up and volunteer for just one Saturday ride for the entire season and help to lead or sweep. Its really simple just say you’ll be there to help out and give us a date from here to the end of September. Time to give back
Please watch out for pot holes on the bike routes especially the one under the Hutch Overpass and Lincoln Ave. We will continue on this course for a couple more weeks before heading out on some new routes. Make sure to look at some of the upcoming rides (below) for some events. If you haven't got your bike out of winter hibernation make sure its road ready. Please get it serviced or given the once over by a bike mechanic before heading out on the roads. Also make sure you have a fully equipped emergency kit with you at all times along with ID, an emergency contact and your cell phone. Don’t assume its all there from last year, check it before you ride. There is a tremendous amount of obstacles on the roads this year especially after a very harsh winter so be alert at all times to avoid them. The roads are much narrower due to the debris so be alert at all times of the motorists around you. The ride route is below for you to review.
TEAM TIMBERMAN …2 separate start times
…67 days to race day
This week due to my daughters graduation I propose to split the ride into 2 starts. The first will start at 5.45am from the Rye High School. We will do one of my favorite local loops which I have not taken with the group to date. It will cover about 22 miles which will in turn finish back at the Rye High School and meet up with the main Rye Tri Club group ride @ 7am. We can then pick up those who which to join the second part of the ride up the Westchester Tri Course and instead of cutting off onto Bedford Road we go up towards Kisco Reservoir and ride up Baldwin Hill before returning back to Rye via Round Hill Road. The second loop is about 30-32 miles. And should get us back to Rye around 9am ish. If anyone who wants to continue on and do more mileage after the 2nd loop as per the training schedule, please feel free to do so.
