Don’t be too sad, there are many Sunday rides still to come and #Cross is coming!

Tuesday All Members Ride | August 30th 6:00PM

OMG!! This is the second last scheduled TAM Ride! Sunset is now before 8:00PM… zoinkies Scoob!

RIDE IS ON. Weather Update: According to EC the “Likelihood of precip is Low”. The ‘Eye Witness’ weather report (looking out the window) is better now and the radar indicates things will greatly improve come 6 PM at the start of this ride. Will there be ‘pop ups’? There is no way of knowing for sure. But if there are, they won’t last long.

This is the Late Season Route for the TAM Ride. It is shorter now the sun is setting earlier. It is very similar to the early season route but with a twist – we go up Col du Watson instead of down. It’s the end of the season, you’re stronger than you were back in April. Bringing lights is always a good idea.

Why don’t the TAM Rides run longer into the fall?

Start times would have to get earlier and earlier and lengths would have to get shorter and shorter due to sunset times vs speed group finish times, distance and duration. See a screenshot of the Late Season portion of our TAM Ride Calculator here.

So far the weather is looking good. This is the Late Season Route for the TAM Ride. It is shorter now the sun is setting earlier. It is very similar to the early season route but with a twist – we go up Col du Watson instead of down. It’s the end of the season, you’re stronger than you were back in April.

New start time – 6:00 PM.

RIDE IS ON. The weather has been weird today with lots of little cells all around us, but clearing according to the forecast – and the radar has not been too helpful. There are no weather Warnings or Alerts, so we are not mandated to cancel. Are we guaranteeing a perfectly dry ride? No. But if we do get some precip, it shouldn’t be too much for too long. And although we are sweet, we’re not made of sugar! lol

NEW LATE SEASON Routes for the TAM Ride! The cherries, strawberries and peas are done, the corn is high, the peaches are ripe and the sun sets sooner! This week we switch to our late season routes – the summer rolls by.

These routes for the TAM Ride are a little shorter now and similar to the early season routes with a twist – we go up Col du Watson instead of down. It’s the end of the season, you’re stronger than you were back in April (and better looking – all the new kit!). Bringing lights is always a good idea.

R1, R2+ R2, R3 – Watch the holes on Mounstberg, lots more hand signals please!

Remember, Tuesday night is about progressing in fitness week-over-week. You are definitely stronger, fitter, faster and better looking (maybe) than when you started. Ok, lets just go with happier, that’s a pretty good goal to have.
