Ride Sunday, March 31

Let's take advantage of (better) weather forecast for Sunday and ride at 13:00 (1 PM) that afternoon, instead of Saturday. We will follow the Orchard Lake route counter clockwise. The full route is 45 miles, and you can shorten that by ten miles by returning to Rosemount via Hwy 3. We’ll make a pit stop at Orchard Lake, even though the rest rooms will probably be closed.

Ride Sunday, October 21

I hope you had a chance to get out for a ride today, like I did, because it was beautiful and this weekend it will be back to abnormally-cold and windy conditions. The forecast for this Saturday is worse than last Saturday, so we’ll ride on Sunday morning. At 09:00 Sunday, we’ll follow the Orchard Lake route, which will provide some shelter from the wind and give us a good workout.

Ride Saturday, September 29

They are predicting our first frost of the season on Saturday morning, so let’s push the start time back an hour. I don’t mind riding in the upper 30s, but not until later in the season. The cool temps last week didn’t hurt the turnout, so I expect the same this week.

This week, we’ll leave Rosemount at 09:00 and follow our Orchard Lake route counterclockwise. So, you can do the full 45-mile route, or cut it short for 35 miles. We’ll stop at Orchard Lake Beach for a nature and food break, so bring food.

I’ve created a short survey to see how we’re doing. Please take two minutes to fill it out.

Ride Saturday, June 30

This week, we will leave Rosemount at 08:00 and follow the Orchard Lake route counterclockwise, with a brief stop at Orchard Lake Beach. The route is 45 miles long, and you can cut it a bit shorter. As many of you know, this is a hilly ride for a stretch along Judicial Rd, so we'll group up at couple of points along the way to keep everyone together. Hopefully, rain won't be a problem this week.
