Saturday Ride at Trout Creek Park 7/3/2010 at 9am
« on: June 30, 2010, 11:38:14 AM »
To kick off the Saturday rides, I will be at Trout creek this Saturday at 9am for those who wish to join me. We will be doing the entire loop and hit most of the trails on the Morris Bridge side (the open ones) at a B to B+ pace.


I drive a Brownish colored Ford Flex with SWAMP, AJ's, and Red Trail Racing Stickers on it... Most likely will be riding my Blue and Silver Giant Trance X3 or my new Red and White Specialized hard tail.

Darrin,
 
I do a lot of rides there on SAT because I have some friends that either bring thier(slow riding) woman or just don't have the skills or just don't wanna ride at Boyette or Alafia. Usually have 4 to 6 riders and leave at 8:30 to do 20-30 miles depending on how the group is doing on a particular day.
 
Overall everage runs from 10-12 mph, there are a couple of guys who can run average more then 12 but are burnt by 12-15 miles.
 
So, I guess you would call our group a B or B plus pace, with plenty of stops to regroup because of the various rider speeds.

Cool, so lets join up! We need to show Wes there is interest/need for Saturday rides since he only got a few responses to his survey... I know SWAMP would benefit by attracting new members just by offering these rides a couple times per month...
