DESCRIPTION

Beautiful, Challenging, Hot, and Early!

This will be a B+ ride with quick water and bathroom breaks every 20 miles or so and a longer early lunch around Nochamixon (either at the Kimberton market or Brig O’Doons).

Bring Food

We are leaving early but it will be HOT!  Bring salt/electrolytes; something concentrated like tablets or Nuun.  Also, the pace will be brisk, so bring pocket food like bars or blocks.  Needless to say but bring 2 large water bottles.

Keep the Pace

This is a No Drop ride but be prepared to keep the challenging pace of 17+ MPH.  There are climbs throughout the ride and we will not leave slower climbers, but if you are a C rider this will NOT be the ride to try and go B.  We are trying to get back before it gets too hot. As a courtesy to the group, we may ask riders who clearly cannot keep the B+ pace to catch an Uber back.  Once again this is a No Drop Ride.  But it is a B+ ride.

Be on time!

We will be leaving before the sun is fully up.  Remember (Romeo) any delay means everybody else has to stay in the scorching sun longer.  Although this is a no-drop ride (Romeo), it does not mean we can’t leave without you. So triple up on your alarms!

Plan B

If it gets too hot, I am considering changing to a 65-mile route to Quakertown as a Plan B.  Please download it just in case we decide to change it up.  This will be a game-day call so don’t count on it.  If a ride leader steps up, it can be a 2nd route option for slower riders.
