Spin N’ Sin

Spin N’ Sin – ONLINE REGISTRATION REQUIRED!
Add some fun midway thru the slog of the week! The idea is to burn enough calories (the “Spin”) such that we all can feel sufficiently good in order to – if time allows & a suitable and safe (probably a spot with outdoor seating for now) venue can be found – gather for 90 min or so and socialize while enjoying a nice bite and a beverage (the “Sin”). This ride is 30 miles and features just enuff hills (800ft of gain) to keep most mountain goats happy for weekday ride, while also offering descents sane enough to stay off the brakes and keep the legs working.
Pace: After 20 mins (I’m old!!) of warm-up, on a completely flat (hardly any) section, w/ smooth (not much exists) pavement, no wind (ha!), and having recovered from whatever hill, proposed pace is 18mph. Plan on just a bit over 2 hrs to complete the route, barring any flats/mechanicals.
Type: The type of ride is a Group. To the greatest extent possible – we will try to stay together. May need to re-group around hills.
Please note: The pace of 18. Riders should be able to maintain that pace on the flats. Not there yet? There are some other rides to train on – then join us on this one when you’re there.
Please arrive 15 minutes early to be a part of the announcements and safety briefing. Riders are expected to have read the Safe Riding Policyand be familiar with the Ride Style Definitions. Please direct questions to the ride leader or Road Captain. Helmets are required. Lights (front and rear), RoadIDs and cell phones are recommended.
Please make sure to print a ride cue sheet or download to your device. Maps are not provided.
Make sure your bike is in good working order. Riders should be able to maintain the stated pace. Please communicate with the leader if you decide to go off route or not return to the start.
Remember – we want to be awesome representatives for cycling and spread a love for our great sport locally by obeying all traffic laws and riding in a safe and courteous manner. Ride safely and have fun!”
