    RODE IS A GO!   See you at the start!

     

    Let's do some training for the Century, T-Birds style! Join the Thunderbirds as we get ready to ride the Century at a decent pace. Each CTR (Century Training Ride), will get a little longer, so we will have the speed endurance needed for the big ride. 

    This week, our ride will have a little less distance than we've been riding, in case any new riders want to join us. After this, the mileage GOES UP! We'll ride some of our favorite rollers, ride in a paceline, visit Area 51 and maybe throw in an intermediate sprint.  The idea being, that we'll train for those long miles of the Century, and still have that ability to sprint over the finish line!

    There will be a fuel stop at around 22 miles in Riverhead, so bring two water bottles and some gels to keep your energy levels up throughout the ride. 

    The routes will have as few traffic lights as possible, so plan on riding without stopping - except for flats. fuel and regroups.

    Allons-y!
