The route Chris suggested to Potzberg, then returning through Fockenberg-Limbach should come out right at 30mi. I think this should be sufficient for the legs this time of year Very Happy

Sounds good, I am going to drop off right after Fockenberg, as we will go near my house. I plan on setting the bar really low tonight in hopes of securing the most improved award by the end of the season.

Great ride last night. Chad, Justin and Charlie rolled from the SS Gym. Chris joined on the valley road heading to the Potzberg. Relaxed pace to the bottom of the Potzberg, then ITT to the top. Sweet burn felt by all on the ascent. For reference, times ranged from about 16:30 to 20+ min for the ascent. We'll see how everyone progresses. I've decided that the 39x25 is not going to cut it for me anymore. Would love to hear what compact combinations people like. See you all out there next week.

19:43 for me. Not a great time, but plenty of room for improvement. The more familiar we get with the climb, the better our times and fitness will get. I can't wait to tackle it again in 2 weeks. Climb it from the South side (Gimsbach) next week, just to mix it up?

Ya, I'll be there. Potzberg from Gimsbach sounds good. We can take it as a group at a reasonable pace. Hopefully no "paper boy-ing" for me on the climb this week Wink

Looking like 4 or 5 for tonight...and perfect weather! We will plan on rolling at 1730 from SS Gym and heading out the main gate. Same route as last week, until Gimsbach, then head up the the south side of Potzberg. Will be approx 30mi again. See you this evening.

Ya...great ride. Solid group...and amazing weather. Hopefully we've hooked you and Matt to be regulars. It could easily be 6 of us on a fairly regular basis. See everyone next week!

@ notdeadyetcyclist or anyone for that matter, I work a weird schedule, so I am always off a couple days during the week. Hit me up if you want to ride weekdays on the road. I'm up for any distance or terrain, and I'm pretty familiar with all the good riding in the area.

Who's going to be there tomorrow? I will be departing the Ramstein South Side Fitness Center no earlier than 1730. I plan to climb the North side of the Potzberg again. Post up if you'll be riding.

I will be there. We should consider doing a loop with the Schneeweiderhof climb in it. We could set the TT times for the Northside of that climb as well. I'm game for either route. See you at 1730.

Ok, Who's going to be there? Leaving out the west gate for a 50-60k road ride with at least one good climb. I was thinking of doing the North side of the Schneewiederhof, which is about 56k. That ride is 25k flat, 3k climb (6.5%), 4k descent, 4k climb (7%), 3k descent, 5k climb with a 1k flat spot in the middle (2.6%), 4k descent with a bump, then fairly flat to the back gate. Weather should be nice. Mark Naglack is heading down from Spang to ride with us. Anyone else?
