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

Post by BigWheels on Thu Mar 27, 2014 9:16 am

DST begins this weekend so it is time to kick off the Wednesday group road ride starting at the Southside gym at Ramstein AB, rolling out at 1730.  Route can be a number of variations, but expect 30-35 miles, with a few climbs and sprints.  This is a no drop ride as we will regroup at the top of all big climbs.  April 2nd may be my only chance left before moving back to the States, so ride leaders will be needed in the future.  Get your Strava apps ready!

Duvi, a short ride sounds good.  I just scheduled an appointment to look at a house at 1600.  I will do my best to be back by 1730 to ride.  How was the Flander's ride?

It was good... but no words exist to explain the experience in the pave.

If you are in Europe and like cycling this should be a must ride!

OK, who else is in this week? This isn't a promise, but this will probably be my last Wed night ride before she gets packed. See you all @1730!

You're an animal Duvi, back to back weekends of cobbles, I'd be on the couch this week!

Looks like the weather will be a little better than yesterday.

Enjoy the new season gents. I'll have to take a rain check until June. I'm coaching my son's baseball team and our practices are Mon/Wed evenings. Once the season is over, tho, I'm in...until I PCS in July.

Anyone up for a ride this week? This will be my first group ride so there will be a bit of a learning curve. Also, if anyone has any suggestions on where to ride I am all ears.

I'll be riding this week.  

Powerpro369 - my family is still in the states.  I am free to ride any evening between now on 5 June when I go get them.  My number at work is 480-2597.

1700 is going to be a bit tough for me but I can try and get there by then. Do either of you have any route preferences? I would like to shoot for 25-30 miles at 15-18mph-ish average speed. This would give us a good 2 hour ride unless there are a bunch of hills. Let me know what you all think

I might be stuck tomorrow have to get some stuff done in the afternoon will do my best to be at the ride. Will post if I am not coming.

For the start time, it just seem that with the 1730 show time + 2hrs gets everyone home rather late. If its a stretch to make it at 1700 then rather people be able to make it than not because its to early.

Start time for todays ride will be shifted to 1700. I have a 26 mile ride set up on my Garmin but I have never riden it before. It looks like there will be a good amount of climbing and the start of the ride will yield a bit of traffic but should thin out as we get further from base. I am terrible with uploading maps onto this site so I will try to write it out.

Start: SS Gym @ 1700
- out east gate
- left towards Mackenbach
- continue towards Reichenbach-Steegan on L367
- continue through Oberstaufenbach to Bosenbach on K56
- take L369 towards Jettenbach
- continue on L369 towards Schwedelbach
- take K13 towards Weilerbach
- take right on K25
- turn right and head back to east gate
- return to SS gym

Total: 24.6 miles

If anyone has other suggestions for rides that would have less traffic, please post!

It is looking like a NoGo for me, so if you don't see me there on time don't wait for me.

I plan on being there at 1700. I've put 70 miles in the last two days, so I "plan" on a nice easy spin.
