8/12 Res Loop Time Again

Ride Details: IT's Res Loop time of the year again, but this time you're in shape. this week I will be leading the IP/RP group. I am going to recommend the IP/RP riders start with a couple mile warm up to the parking lot on 219 by ski sundown. this will give people the option to get a head start on the IP/ RP group.

Location: Saville Dam, Barkhamsted

Parking: In the Large parking area on the east side of the dam

Start time: 6:00pm (watch forum for earlier groups to form)

Distance: 22 miles and 2000 feet of elevation gain

Several groups will form base on pace. Some groups may leave earlier than 6:00 start time watch this thread for information.

A 22-mile training ride around the Barkhamsted Reservoir (clockwise), with over 2,000 ft of climbing.

For those who are not familiar with the Res Loop ride here is the route Res Loop __

I will be leaving the parking area at intersection of RT 179 and RT 44 at 5:30 pm. Moderate warm up pace gets us to dam for 6:00 pm start of the IP ride.


In reply to RonB

May see you en route Ron, will be coming through N.H. from home heading for the 6:00 start. Just checked to see how long it would take me to get to the start from home and happened to notice it was 37 degrees when we did the first April Res. Loop this year. Guess we better "git while the gitten is good."
