Weekly Road Ride from Southside Gym at Ramstein: Wednesdays @1730

Post by velo-doc on Sat Mar 30, 2013 3:21 pm

**NEW THREAD FOR 2013 SEASON**

DST starts this weekend, and so do the weekly rides. So as not to compete w/ our Tue/Thur MTB rides, I will be leading a RR from the South Side Fitness Center at Ramstein AB every Wednesday at 1730...weather permitting. The route will be some derivation of the one used last year. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Plan for approximately 2hrs with some climbing, pacelining, sprints, etc. The ride will be no-drop, and we may be able to have A/B pace groups, depending on participation.

See you on Wednesday!

Chad

I hope to join you, though 1730 is pretty early start for me.

1730 gives a little buffer with shorter days to start with. We can adjust fire as needed if people are struggling to make it on time.

I should be there tomorrow, anything above 35F is a treat!
jk

P.S. This ride bans the use of carbon wheels, silk sew-ups, or aero-bars?

Damn...I was really thinking about throwing my HED Trispoke on the front and Mavice Comete disc on the back! Would be fun if it's windy. See you out there.

Bummer...looks like I might be solo. Have fun in Tuscano! I'm jealous...those winding and hilly roads between Castelfiorentino, Certaldo, San Gimignano and Volterra are amazing...should be amazing training.

Anyone else out there hitting the road tonight?

Dry, overcast and low 40s...that's about as good as we've seen lately. I'll be at the Southside Gym at 1730.

I should be able to make it to the ride on 10 April. Hopefully the weather forcast for that day changes, but as long as it's not actively "raining cats and dogs", I'll ride. Forcast has 40% chance of showers, high of 50, winds from WSW at 15 mph...sunset at 2015. I suspect I'll be forced to ride anyway since I'll probably commute in on the road bike that morning.

Well folks...cold and windy last week was bad enough, but cold, wet and windy is a little too much for me this week. I will not be there to lead the ride today. The weather is already looking better for next week, so we'll plan to pick it up again then.

I have no choice but to ride...it's my only way home. I'll still be at the SS gym at 1730 for those of you that still want to brave the conditions.

It's not actually raining at the moment and it looks pretty nice out there. I'll still be waiting in front of the gym til 1735.

Ya, I'm glad it turned out nice for you. I had already made plans, or else I would have jumped in the car and made it. Hope the weather is good next week!

Looking good for the ride this week. Still early in the season, so maybe just do the Potzberg Northside climb as we've discussed in the "Hillclimb TT" posts. Should be able to keep the distance to around 30ish miles. I made a couple wrong turns the first week and ended up w/ like 35mi w/ the Potzberg climb. See you Wednesday.

I should be there if I can make it back early enough from the railbike thing (http://www.draisinentour.de/) in Altenglan. If I can't, I'll try my best to be at the base of the North side for the hill climb, since it is literally 1km from where the bikerail thing ends.

Defiantly would like to go but I have a couple thing working against me. One, it has been a long time since I have riden anything and two I am sure my pace could never keep up with you all. So, if this truly is a no drop ride and you are willing to be a bit patient I will make every effort to ride. Also be advised that I don't know the rules of proper road riding eddicate. This is my first attempt with riding with anyone else. That said, I am not a lazy rider so I will try to keep up.

@powerpro369...You are definitely welcome to join. The course is rolling with several smaller climbs and the significant climb of the Potzberg. Rolling terrain is pretty easy to sit in on, but may be more of a challenge if you are not comfortable with riding inside the draft of the guy in front of you. I am not expecting a large group, so it would be reasonable to check it out and see what you think. No one will be left behind, and we always regroup at the top of climbs. If you are really nervous about your fitness, then take the opportunity to enjoy the weather and get some miles in your legs, then come on out and join us.

@velo-doc...did you already have a route in mind to get to the North side climb of the Potzberg? If not, I would suggest just sticking to the Glan River valley (25km) to keep the legs semi-fresh prior to the "big" climb. The route would be Ramstein, Steinwenden, Obermohr, Niedermohr, Glan-Munchweiller, Rehweiller, Gimsbach, Theisbergsteegen, Muhlbach, then up the Potzberg. Anything after the Potzberg we can decide at the regroup at the top, depending on how people feel. Thoughts?
