Road Ride Sunday, Aug 26

Anyone interested in riding Sunday? Maybe 40 miles around Bann/Queidersbach/Oberanbach areas. Start time negotiable.

Cheers,

Highway 270 south toward Pirmasens. At the turnoff for Krickenbach, there's a small gravel parking lot on the right we call Schweinstal. Park there. Most of my routes are circular back to this starting point. See you Sunday.

Love to have you along, Chris. Just name a time and place and I'll be there. Explored deep into the backroads today around Mölschbach and east. Beautiful countryside and very few autos. Plenty of climbing, though. I was tooling along wondering when this hill was going to end when two hardcore climbers whizzed by. I did my best to keep up but they were too far gone before I started the chase. Fun stuff.

Cheers,
Darren

Will do on a ride.

There are definitely some locals that can burn up the hills here.

Had a Great Ride

Post by jdudjak on Sun Aug 19, 2012 2:46 pm

Darren,
My thanks for the great ride. 40 miles in the hill country is a good addition to my fitness program. Going down the hill I hit my fastest speed ever 42mph with lots of braking. If I could lose about 15lb I think I could make it up the hills a lot easier!

I would like to invite you and anyone else on this thread to a very flat 40 mile run from Ramstein West gate to Kirkel and back. The roads are good, and there is not one hill to speak of. We can take turns pulling and try to see what average speed we can achieve.

How about 0800 at Ramstein West Gate on Sunday 26 Aug?

Jason, the weather isn't looking promising Sunday. I'm postponing until next weekend with hopefully better weather.

Darren,
Just got back at 1100. Got a little wet with one small shower. Will have to clean the bike today. Wind from Landstuhl to Kirkel was 20 mph in my face. Averaged 15.8 mph out. Flew back home with wind at my back. Averaged 19.8 with the wind at my back to make a trip average of 17.8. It was really fun coming back reaching speeds of 25mph over flats with 20mph wind at my back. I saw one road bike team and a few other road bikers out there.
See you next week.

Darren,
DougMC is confirmed, you are confirmed, and myself are confirmed. DougMC is trying to get one of his friends, the spin instructor from the south side fitness center to also go. Spookyload please do come if you get the chance!

50 Mile Round Trip Ride from Landstuhl to St Ingbert Complete

Post by jdudjak on Sun Sep 02, 2012 3:07 pm

Had an awesome ride this morning with 4 riders pushing as hard as we could. The sun was shining at 65 degrees and the wind was slight. DougMC who is a STRONG rider, and Doug's friend who is a spin instructor, Darren and myself rode 50 miles alternating lead. On the way there the wind was with us at about 6 mph and we averaged 19.2 mph riding hard. Many times we were topping out at 22 mph on the flats. On the way back we had the wind in our face but we still managed to hit 20 mph. One extended downhill ride we hit 33mph all tucked in line. Doug, who is a tall 170lb 30 something can climb like a fighter jet. We had to tell him to slow down on the extended grades when he was in the lead because he was wearing us out. Taking turns at the front is key and a group will always ride faster than an individual. Total average speed for the ride was 18.9mph. Thanks a lot guys for the exhilarating ride because it is rides like those that make great memories.
