We’ve got a big day Sunday. Now is the time to take a few minutes and set aside everything you need. Think about going on a ride that is un-supported and has no stores to stop in. If you grab everything you need for that situation you’ll be in good shape.
I hope those who are racing Sunday had a chance to get out on their own if they didn’t join us on Wednesday. We got in some good technical skills on Tenderfoot and fast down-hilling on Hoo Koo E Koo. A steady tempo and lots of regroups made for a great ride.
3:30 from the Depot. Sorry….no longer ride as I’d hoped. Railroad Grade to the top of Tam and down Rock Springs. If we run out of daylight we may need to adjust. This is the last chance to practice as a team before the race. Hope to see as many of you there as possible.
Because of ski week and the number of rider’s who will be away we will have our usual departure. 9am from the depot. Intended route is up railroad, coastal and diaz ridge. Wear layers and bring plenty of food and water. Lots of regroups.
From Tiburon at 10:30 I see sun. As we all know the weather in this area can change on a dime. Please check the blog for a ride/no ride status if the weather looks as though it may cancel a ride. Questionable rides will be posted with an updated status on this blog by 3pm for Wednesday rides and 8:30am for Sunday rides.
Here are the results from our first TT today. Everyone looked like they gave it their all. Keep riding (and racing) and you’ll see a big difference when we do it again.
|Tam High TT #1||Old Railroad Grade|
|13-Feb-11||Cascade Creek to Hogback|
|1.3mi, 5.6%, 396ft|
(Remember this was hand-timed, at clock-time start intervals, so don’t get hung up on a few seconds here and there)
