South End Getting Ready to Ride Series (GR2R) #5--NOTE: Daylight Savings Time
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Is this the year you are finally going to ride in that big bike event? The STP, RSVP, a century? Are you contemplating signing up for the Cascade Training Series (CTS) this April to get ready for those big rides but even this scares you a bit? Then start early with our Getting Ready to Ride Series! This series begins in February and will end just before the beginning of CTS. It will be a nice transition from a weekend rider out for a spin on the local bike path to a cyclist who can, by the end of the series, ride 30 miles on the roads with ease. By the end of the Getting Ready to Ride Series you will have the confidence and stamina to begin the CTS series.
Our fifth South End Getting Ready to Ride event is on Sunday, March 9, 2014 starting from West main Street and Interurban Trail in Auburn. We will ride from Auburn to the Black Diamond Bakery for a total of 28 miles.
Please plan to arrive by 1:15 so we can process the ride waiver, do equipment checks, and discuss the route. We anticipate the ride will last 2 – 2.5 hours depending on how the day goes. Please consult the Cascade Bicycle Club Daily Rides web page for information for new riders (http://www.cascade.org/welcome-newcomers) as helmets and so forth are required for the ride.
Remaining scheduled ride dates for The South End Series are 16 March and 29 Mar. Please visit Cascade Daily Rides calendar page (http://www.cascade.org/EandR/Activities_Calendar.cfm?query=cascadefreedailyride ) and under the Cascade Free Daily Rides subgroup of meetup.com (http://www.meetup.com/cascaderides/).
The address under start location will get you close to the trailhead. 809 West Main is across the street from the trailhead.
