It's that time of year again! The weather is finally nicer and it's time to get out and ride! Below you will find all the pertinent info with regard to our Monday mountain bike ride, and our Wednesday bike path spin.
Lincoln Woods Monday night advanced trail ride:
If you've considered joining our weekly mountain bike ride this is the time to do it. The earlier season rides (April into May) will be a bit slower and more user friendly. After the middle of May things will get faster with less stopping, and we will incorporate more of the technical features that the park is known for.
* The first ride is on 4/11.
Please note that we moved it to Mondays! (I know it states this above but still...) For the month of April the start time is 6:15 at Lincoln Woods (park off the Twin River entrance) to start. Mike and I will likely ride over from the shop, if you want to join us just be at the shop by 5:45 ready to ride by 6:00.
After May 1st all the Monday night rides will leave from the shop at 6:15!
* Please, please, please make sure your bike is in proper running order and that you have the basics (an inflation device, a tube, a patch kit and some rudimentary tools). As much as I love fixing bikes I like to ride a lot more, and we may leave you to the mosquitos and the notorious Lincoln Woods Sasquatch. The decision to leave you to the wolves is at our discretion and may be swayed by bribery (read: good beer).
Wednesday Night Bike Path spin:
Feel free to join us on Wednesday nights for a spin on the Blackstone River Bikeway. We'll leave from the shop at 6:15 and ride for a little over an hour to spin up to Woonsocket and back. We'd really like to keep the pace to right around 15mph. This is not a hammerfest but rather a chance for some to work on their fitness and others to spin out their tired legs. If it's raining the ride is off.
If you really want to haul ass feel free to go for it. It's the bike path, you can't lost! If you really want to suffer one of us can drag you around (or, more likely, you'll drag one of us around) the hillier locales north of the shop accessible from the Bikeway.
* The first ride is on 4/13.
