Shop ride Sundays: It's Steiner time!

Yep, we are back in full cadence for this Sunday, Feb. 27th at the Steiner Ranch Steakhouse. We'll have 3-ride groups doing the usual routes. Advanced will leave first, followed by one or two Intermediate groups and finally the no-drop ride. When we say no-drop, we mean it.

For the first 6-miles or so you can start with any group, if you get dropped, stop and wait, then next group will be along in a few minutes. We strongly discourage any group ride first timers from going out with the Advanced ride since after a mile or two they'll pick up the pace and it's dangerous to you and everyone else if this is your first big group ride, you are out of breath and struggling to keep up, you are likely to make a silly mistake and fall, and worse still, bring someone else down. So pick an appropriate group to start with.

Once the Advanced and Intermediate groups turn off 620, although they complete the same route, they are NOT no drop and you'll have to work to stay with your group.

Don't forget, we leave on time, so that means 8:30 a.m. If you need to set-up, assembly bike etc. then I suggest planning to arrive no later than 8:05.

After the ride we'll assemble indoors or hopefully as the weather looks good, out on the deck for half price brunch and drinks. You can change in the bathrooms but please be discrete and respectful to other customers and to the restaurant for hosting us!

I won't be there Sunday, have a great and safe ride though! Mark.
