Sunday Ride

I am Ride leader for a new ride at 6pm Sunday evenings, from Lincoln School.  It will be a chance for new riders to build road riding skills, and prepare for the speed of our regular club rides.  It will also be an outlet for regular riders, to throttle back, and share what they have learned, or  just enjoy a more relaxed pace.  I expect the rides to build from a 13-15 mph ave pace early in year, to an ave pace of 16-17mph by the time we reach the longest days of summer.  We will also build the length of the rides as we go.  This will be a no drop ride, but riders must be willing to learn how to draft off other riders.   Riders should be riding at least one other time per week, either alone, or as part of another's camera bike trophys 144Riders riding twice a week, or 50 total miles per week, should have no issue keeping up, even if they miss a ride here and there.

If there is an interest in a 13-15 mph group, that isn’t looking to go faster, a second leader will need to step forward, so we can split into two groups.

Rabbit Run goes Virtual in 2014!

Eyes on the prize!


After 3 seasons, the Rabbit Run will go virtual.  Riders will need to sign up at Straight River Sports, and will report times by placing a note in a sealed box, at the shop.  Nobody will know who has won, until season is over.

Rabbit Run 101

I am not an expert, but here are some random thoughts, in random order, that may help you attack the Rabbit Run, for the first time.  This is what I feel I’ve learned.  Others may think differently, and their experience is welcome.  Comment here, or on google groups site.  I hope it will work to start some talking points, and share some knowledge. Rabbit Run 101
