Greg has been putting out a good effort to encourage participation in the Thursday Night Ride. This week he is adding some extra social interaction to the ride. If you don’t plan to ride maybe socializing after the ride will fit. See you there?
The long evenings for riding are waning now.
6 – 8 pm group ride – not easy
Brent’s SVR loop
This week, in celebration of the great summer of riding we had, I propose a
social time after the ride.
It is pretty much “street lights on” by 830 pm now.
If the ride is finished say about 8pm, there is enough time to get together at
830 for some cycling repartee.
I think in the past the CCC has met at Frank’s Joint on King Street E. I suggest
I am sure that there is cold beer and hot wings for those that want it.
Open to all CCC members and associates….
1) All riders of the time trial are reminded of the resurfacing of Shelter
Valley Road that took place earlier this season. This roadwork has deposited a thick layer of
pea gravel on the road shoulders. Avoid riding on the road shoulders. It is very
loose and slippery there. The hard surface of the road has discernible tracks to follow. These are the
better/smoother/faster lines on the road. Using the right hand line will ensure
that you avoid the pebbles and leave space for automobiles to pass.
2) All riders, please be aware that there is still on-going construction on the
tunnel for the creek. As a result, through the road tunnel, on the west side
(returning lane), there is a row of traffic delineators. Do not ride into these
pilon-like devices. The delineators are made of hard rubber. If you hit these,
they will win. Hold your line through the tunnel. Know where you are on the road
at all times.
Best of luck.

The roads are still wet out here. To be safe the TT Has been cancelled.
If you really want to ride this week Greg will be sending me a ride plan for Thursday.
