Ride Saturday, Aug 12


For those of you who were able to join us last Saturday, Gary treated us to some hills and a couple of unexpected stops at Minnehaha Academy and a car event in Eagan, where we saw some hot cars, including McLaren, Porsche, Corvette, and Mustang Shelby. Thanks Gary!

This Saturday, the weather looks like it will again be perfect and we will ride to Cannon Falls clockwise for 56 miles. The start is 08:15 sharp at Starbucks and a finish time around 11:30.

I also want to let you know about a new ride that I have planned for Saturday, September 2 starting at 08:00, with a weather date two weeks later. We'll ride from Rosemount, through Hastings and Prescott, to Red Wing and back to Rosemount. There are some nice hills on this one for at least 2500 feet of climbing. The distance is 85 miles, so those who want a shorter ride, you'll have two options: ride with us to Lock and Dam No 2 in Hastings or meet us there at 09:00.

Finally, to extend the life of your drive train, remember to wipe your chain with a rag after every ride.

Safety first, Fun second!
