A/B/C Pace 7:30 am 32-65 miles Smithfield
Join fellow cyclists from Tidewater Bicycle Association (TBA), Peninsula Bicycling Association (PBA), Team Portsmouth, and the Chuckatuck Chainring this Sunday, August 2nd for a fun regional bike ride through Smithfield and Isle of Wight Counties.
Routes, Paces, and Departure Times:
7:30 a.m.: Metric Century (A pace)
8:00 a.m.: 50 miles (B+ pace; B- pace)
8:30 a.m.: 32 miles (B pace; C pace)
This is a great chance to get a few miles in to prepare for the Fall Century rides. We will have multiple ride leaders and will break into smaller groups to keep the roads clear. After the ride, we will go to Smithfield Station for brunch (optional). Their Sunday brunch is amazing... cooked-to-order omelets, waffles, fresh fruit, etc. Coffee and one orange juice are also included for $14.95. RSVP at http://pbabicycling.org/event-1996086 ONLY if you plan to have brunch with the group. The goal is to get everyone back and to the restaurant by 11:00 a.m., so riders need to choose a route that they can complete in 3 – 4 hours so we can eat before they break the buffet down at 12:00 p.m. There are many other eateries in Smithfield as well – RSVP is only needed for Smithfield Station and riders are welcome to pick somewhere else to socialize after the ride.
This is a great chance to make friendships with cyclists from all around our region. The route is absolutely beautiful!
This is a cyclist-supported ride, without a SAG, so bring two water bottles, snacks, money, spare parts and tools for fixing a flat on the "fly". We are a friendly and supportive group, but we can best help those in distress if they have emergency parts ready. We will be using local stores and roadside pull off areas for rest stops. Since it is summer, it might be wise to also bring sunscreen, baby wipes, and a change of clothes for comfort.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
