Single Speed Ride - Sunday 9 February @1400

Post by airborne.s2000 on Sun Feb 02, 2014 10:27 am

For those of us with single speed or fixed gear bikes (or those who want to join us, and promise they will pick a gear and not shift) I am putting together a SS road ride Sunday at 1400. I plan on keeping this ride pretty chill, no climbs of any significance (almost no climbs at all). The ride will start from the McDonald's parking lot outside Vogelweh (Im Haderwald 15, 67661 Kaiserslautern) and head towards Homburg along the L395 for as long as people are interested in riding. If there is interest in attacking a hill, we will take a south turn somewhere along the route, and go up to the L465, continue west a bit, and then come back down the next north road to the L395/L119. If you want to join in the ride from some other location along the route, post up. If enough people want to meet elsewhere, we can change the starting location. Intent is for 2+ hours riding.

The weather killed the group aspect of the ride. I went out for ~45km, but got caught in a sleet storm that turned into a snowstorm which turned into a rainstorm. Terrible, cold, windy ride. At least I didn't freeze to the bike.

I am not organizing a ride this weekend, as the +1 and I are heading to Paris for what may be our last European 4 day weekend. Keeping my fingers crossed that my branch manager will get my assignment posted this week.
