Ride Saturday, August 24

The weather forecast for Saturday looks good, with temps from 62 to 72 degrees, and moderate winds (8 – 12 mph) from the southeast, so I suggest the group ride to Cannon Falls, while I’m away this week. Nearly everyone knows the route and you’ll have a good tail wind coming back, so that should make this a good route. You can go clockwise or counter clockwise and, as usual, the ride will leave Rosemount at 08:00.

With the head winds to Cannon Falls, remember to use a circular rotation, to spread the workload. Rotate toward the wind, so the slower side is in the wind, and keep the speed constant and at a speed that everyone can sustain. We need one or two riders to step up an lead the group. Which means ensuring that everyone follows the same route, stays together, and has fun.
