When: Saturday February 20 at 10 a.m. We will begin promptly at 10 a.m., so please arrive early to prepare.
Where: Landrum Ingles (1851 Hwy 14 E , Landrum, SC 29356). From Spartanburg, take I-26 West to Exit 1. Take a left at the top of the ramp on Hwy 14 and Ingles is on the right across I-26.
Pace/Time: We will do the usual steady moderate Saturday eRide pace between climbs, which with the terrain we’ll be on should be in the 17-18 mph average speed range. The Watershed climb will be at your own pace with regroups at the turn to Saluda and then in Saluda itself. Figure a total ride time of 4:15.
Store stop: One stop around halfway before we descend Green River Cove.
SAG: None planned at this time. Please come prepared to be self-sufficient and bring equipment to change a flat, cell phone, cue sheet, etc.
More info: The rides will be what we consider A / B level rides. In general, we will ride at a steady moderate pace between climbs with the climbs at your own pace. We will regroup at the top of climbs before proceeding. If you are unsure about your ability to do a particular ride, please contact us before the ride. We try to help everyone, but if you are obviously having trouble maintaining contact with the group, we will recommend you turn back or proceed on your own. There are sometimes sections during a ride where the group tends to string out before regrouping. Please be patient during these sections as we will regroup at the usual spots. If you get behind, just stay straight to the regroup point. Try to remember that these are group rides, and we often have to adjust to changing circumstances so everything may not happen exactly as planned or as you would like. If you come looking for some training and a fun social atmosphere with friends, then you should leave happy and tired at the end of the ride. Helmets required.
