Sunday Medium & Moderate Road Ride | May 29th 8 AM

I think we can all agree that, in most cases, cycling with other people is more fun than cycling alone. I mean, we joined a cycling club and that would indicate a certain inclination towards collectivism. And we might also agree that the more people in the group, the more fun it can be.

With that in mind, I have conspired with Deanna to merge a portion of the medium and moderate Sunday ride with the long and fast version. Does that mean our ride will be medium and fast? It does not. Will the other ride be long and medium paced? Inconceivable. Instead, we ride together at a pace we can all sustain for a time and then we, the medium and moderates among the group, will make our way home at whatever pace we need to. Meanwhile, the long and fast types can rip it up for as long as they see fit.

The route Deanna recommended heads south and therefore is largely downhill in the early going. The uphill journey home will likely be the moderate part (but with a forecasted tailwind and a stop in Carlisle for empty, fully-justifiable carbs.)

I like this plan. I especially like it because it means I can ride with more people and therefore have more fun. You should come and have fun, too. After all, isn’t that why you joined a cycling club?
