Wobble Ride!

Twenty three riders braved high winds, and temps in the forties, to set off on the first Wobble Ride!  All survived the trip, despite one of our riders, appearing to be a Barbie turned Terrorist!  Fun was had by all, and warm weather should bring even more riders and double the fun.  Can we handle that much fun, we’ll risk it.  Thanks to the folks at Brooktree, who took great care of us.  Rides will start at 6:30pm each Wednesday night, from a different park or restaurant.  If you can ride 8-10 mph, and then eat and socialize after, this may be just the ticket.  April 29th, 6:30pm, meet at Sparetime Bowling!  I’ll be having the Burger basket!

 

Sunday Ride!

Starting April 12th, I will be leading a more relaxed ride from Lincoln School, at 6pm.  It is a chance for new riders to prepare for our regular rides, and regular riders to throttle back, relax and share what they’ve learned, or just shoot the breeze………..in the breeze.

Rabbit Run for 2015!

JKTimeTrial    (Note: Start at the yield sign at the corner of Co. 6 and Co.157 and head East, make the loop and the finish line is the county junction sign .2 mi short of the starting point)

 

2015 begins the 5th season of the Rabbit Run.  The course is a 14.6 mile field test, which is self-timed using your bike computer.  The course is street legal as maintained by the county, which you ride at your own risk.   You may sweep corners if you wish.  I suggest you ride the course rested, and plan your tests at times of light wind.  Half hour after sunrise, and before sunset are often excellent.  Light wind allows you to better compare your ride against your earlier efforts, as well as making it easier to gauge your effort, as you ride the course.   There will no longer be a trophy for top times.  I don’t want to encourage riders to take any undue risks.  The real reward is improved ability and fitness.  While supplies last, I still have plenty of T-shirts and caps.  If you post a time by sending me the info by email, (jimkempf2@hotmail.com), I will get you a T-shirt or cap.  Just give me a shirt size, (all men’s cut), and address where you want it delivered.  If size unavailable, we’ll substitute a cap or you can get a extreme size and use as a nightshirt or teddy.  I will maintain a list for stock-dropbar, and open-tt bike/aerobars runs in 2015.  Check right here all Summer long for updates!
