Shop ride Sundays: Steiner Ride Special

After the last triathlon of the High Five and shop run and sponsored Texas Tri series, it's time to get started on winter base and maintenance. What better way to start than the Steiner Ranch Steakhouse Ride?

We are back at the Steakhouse this Sunday. Ride starts as always at 8:30 a.m. prompt. Although I expect a smaller group this week as it's the Run for the Water 10-miler, the Steakhouse rides are always popular and the parking lot fills quickly. Please arrive in time, we won't wait.

We will have 3 groups start, advanced, intermediate and of course, Jacks "famous" no-drop. The advance and intermediate take the same out and back route, so it's a good chance to try to hang with the faster group. For the intermediate, which is often the biggest group, I'll try to keep the group together until we get onto Volente, after that since it's pretty much a straight out and back on wide shoulders, it's up to you to decide how fast you can go and where.

No-drop is as always, no-drop. James and Hugo will be along to sheperd. Elizabeth will either be with them, or helping me on the intermediate. After the ride, the great folks at the Steiner Ranch Steakhouse will be providing half price brunch. See y'all Sunday, winters coming time to build a base! ++Mark.
