As the ride season winds down, we still have beautiful riding days ahead, but the weather can be a little less predictable.
As each weekend approaches, take a look at the ride schedule. We have the option of making last minute additions to the schedule if the forecast looks good, or we find ourselves with a bit of available time. It doesn't have to be a formal, researched route.
Show and go rides are an option. If you're not familiar with the concept, it's a ride that doesn't necessarily have a destination or route planned in advance. The group that shows up to ride decides where to go - an improvised route.
If you've got time to lead a ride on one of these late season weekends, but you don't necessarily have time to research and pre-ride a route, please consider adding a show and go with an approximate speed range and distance, and perhaps a general direction where you'd like to go.
