Pump your tires, oil your chain, find your speed suit. Tonight’s TT is looking good. The wind won’t be perfect but it should be more helpful than not.
We don’t have many TT’s left this season.
See you at Normar Road.
This months Dirty Thursday Gravel/Adventure Ride headed out with two riders. Sometime these rides turn into exploratory rides. We found some gravel with a 17% decline. This soon turned to some gravel with a 17% incline. Not too hard with CX gearing. Checkout the scenery in the Photos
This weeks Gravel/adventure ride will start at the Beagle Club parking lot. Some different adventure roads and some roads that most of us don’t see too often.
The township roads have lots to offer. The scenery is spectacular. The roads are quiet and almost car free.
6:30 at the Beagle Club. Let us know if you plan to attend in the comments or on the Northumberland Cycle Group Facebook page.
Pump up your tires, maybe eat a few extra carbs, fill your water bottles.
The weather watch has been dropped. We are still under a slight chance of a thunder storm or maybe just a little rain. At this point the Time Trial will proceed. If you don’t see anymore posts, see you at Harwood and Claperton Roads.
Sorry folks but this on will be cancelled also.
The Radar looks bad and the Traffic cameras east of Toronto show pouring rain.
Maybe see everyone on Thursday.
Shelter Valley Road Will be getting a new surface of Chip Seal tomorrow morning.
This means we will have to find another venue for the Cobourg Cycling Club Tuesday night Wrold Time Trials.
I am not sure about Lakeshore road. It may have already been resurfaced.
Take one more day of recovery. The Radar is not looking very friendly, the roads are still very wet. Not a very inviting night for a TT.
Now if some people wanted to go out on CX bikes and get all wet and muddy it would be a great day.
Tuesday is one of those Go – No Go days. At this time the risk of rain is about 50%. I will be working tomorrow so the weather call will be after 4PM. If I don’t post the race is on.
The plan for Thursday evening’s Gravel Ride, is to ride the Nasty 45 course (or a variation). Sunset will be 8:30 therefore we have plenty of time and plenty of short cuts.
Gravel rides at this time of year are no drop group rides on roads that require tires a little more substantial than road race tires. The course has been completed on 28mm tires and detours can get you around the really rough stuff.
Baltimore Community Centre… The bikes leave at 6:30 pm.
Keep your eyes to the sky tomorrow afternoon. Environment Canada says there is a slight chance of rain tomorrow afternoon/evening. Bring some woollies though as it may feel like snow.
Don’t forget your TOONIE!
Tuesday evening weather looks as if it will be almost perfect Time Trial weather. Warm enough to encourage everyone to ride. Cool enough to aid in your comfort during an all out effort. See you there.
Don’t forget your toonie.
Please watch this page for weather related cancellation postings.
I do prefer to err on the side of caution / safety.
