Returning to our Regularly Scheduled Program

Pedal Punks resumes it's regularly scheduled rides this week. Ride on Sunday beginning at 4:30. Meet at the usual spot. This week we'll meet a little later and take advantage of the amazing weather.

I also want to address some issues of group size. We had a phenomenal group last week and since our group has grown I'm having to learn to manage riding with a bigger group of people with different levels of skill (all of which we welcome). What I'd like to offer this week is a pre-ride talk about our route and possible drop-out points if anyone is feeling like they would like to hit the Bywater earlier. I don't want to lose people on the ride either so I want to make it clear that we will wait at certain points along the ride, especially after the gentle yet challenging climb into West Asheville. Another issue I'd like to discuss is riding safety. When we are on busier roads, lets try to stay single file, especially on Riverside and Haywood. This will ensure the safety of the group by giving ample space to other road users.

Hope to see you out this Sunday
