Same ride as last weekend. Hopefully we take the first 15 miles a little easier so we have something for the end.

My plan is to go out easy and not push it for the first half. After the first rest stop we have 51 and 111 and the pace will probably will pick up. There will be a wait up on 51. Both groups should be together at this point.. And of course as always on Line Road different groups may form depending on your level of fitness.

This ride is not a race but an endurance ride. If you go out to hard you may have to cut the ride short so plan carefully. If you stay with me you should be fine. Ron (Tico) will be leading a B+/A tag along ride. 

 

Make sure you download or are familiar with the route.

Another endurance ride at the higher end of a B+/A following Jim's Calverton 51 route. The idea is that both groups stay together for the first half. Then we go onto CR 51 and 111. We will regroup at the traffic light after the hill on 51 and then take a steady moderate pace on 111. As always, different groups may form on Line Rd depending on your level of fitness.

IMPORTANT: If this winter you have not been riding at all or you have done very few rides you may have to cut this one short. If that is the case, I will have to stay with the group and you will be on your own. Plan carefully, don't go out too hard, pace yourself and take quick pulls if any

...But if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CySmd8M8oIM

(A rare video from the Rock and Roll Circus, when the Stones included Brian Jones).

It's like that with rides, you might find this one has what you need. We'll have some long runs for pacelines, the long rise up County Road 104, the return up the Casa Basso rise and the Hart's Road Hump. Hopefully enough challenges to satisfy all you Thunderbirds.

For refueling, we'll stop again in Hampton Bays at around 24 miles, so plan on bringing some snacks with you!

Allons-y!

This route Heckscher may change up a bit towards the end of the ride if the wind is in our favor; making this route pretty flat except for 2 overpasses. We’ll be heading south using the Connetquot Park bike bath. We’ll work our way down to Heckscher Park, do a loop where one can stretch the legs a bit if desired. The average pace for this ride will be between 14.0 & 15.0 . The road speed will be between 15 and 16.5 mph

We’ll be making a rest stop around mile 19 at the deli/bakery. The route back will be determined by the wind direction. Good Stuff after the Ride.  Not sure what good stuff; it's always a surprise.

Any cancellations due to unforeseeable circumstances, or weather related problems will be posted by 8:00am. If you have any questions about this ride, or the start location, please call or text my cell, 631-484-3490.

Tim Mayer will be leading this ride with a few changes.This is a repeat of last weeks ride. We all loved it. Heading east to the Kings Park Bluff. Then back west to Makamah Beach, Asharoken & Eaton's Neck. The rest stop is about 20 miles in at a Bagel/Deli on 25A. A nice mix of hills, rollers & flats. Approximate elevation 2300, so says Strava. We may add in one more long steady climb. Riding at a slower pace to allow for the hill training. We came in at 13.6 last week. My cell 631 922-0632

Given the strong winds we may shorten ride and can decide along the way 

I'm combining the Coram to Shoreham with my Longwood Loop. We will head to Shoreham Beach via Whiskey Rd. On way back we can stop at Bagel place for bathroom, water, snack; then head back to Whiskey to go south on Smith and do Longwood loop. There is one hill at Longwood school otherwise this ride will be flat and rolling.  I don't know how to do ride with gps so i guesstimated mileage which should be close.  Please check back by 9 am morning of for any changes.

Since its early in season i've dropped pace to C+ for those of us needing to get back our legs and seats!  Please bring water & snacks.

any questions call Anita at (631) 806-9662.

Joe S. had to cancel his "C" ride, so I have changed my ride to a "C" and was able to move the start a little earlier - 10:45 AM.

Just back from a ski trip, so lets take an easy meander around Calverton and Manorville, with a good part on the bike path and the new extension back to the parking lot. The temperature should be very nice and, if it is windy, this route will keep us on many roads that are not out in the open. We will take our break at Bean & Bagel, where you may snack and use the bathroom.

 I am not using my road bike, so feel free to bring your hybrid or fat tire, if you have one. The ride will average 11.8 - 12.0, with cue sheets.
