Tuesday 7/7 CP Club Ride - On the Flatter Side to Duncaster

Here's this weeks route, a 35mi 1700ft climb. All sorts of new stuff on this ride, pretty easy going on the climbing this week. Weather is not looking good so I'll make a call later today. We do come over RT-185 mountain so single-file there, but it's not bad at 7:45pm.


Cue Sheet:

  • I'll update the Sheet in a bit.

Additional Ride Details:

  • Location: Farms Village Plaza (Shops Across from Tulmeadow Farms & Post Office)
  • Address: 244 Farms Village Rd, West Simsbury, CT 06092
  • Parking: In the REAR lot behind the builds
  • Start time: 6:00pm sharp
  • Distance: 18-40 miles (varies by month and amount of daylight)
  • Ride Leaders: Christian Torrillo, Steve Savino, John Lockwood

PACE: This is a "Club Pace" ride (generally averaging 15-17 mph) - Route varies weekly, exploring areas west, north, and east of Simsbury. Rides generally alternate between hilly & flat. Regroups always occur at key points, certainly at the tops of climbs. This Ride's is considered "Progressive" where each week the speed and climb increase as riders improve and we chase maximum daylight, however; always staying within the advertised club pace and regrouping.

PLEASE NOTE: Starting in 2015, The group may split based on number of riders. Helmets are required, an emergency headlight is recommended as we chase the daylight. Headphones/ear buds are not allowed. Non-members must sign waiver in order to ride, Minors require adult signature.

Weather not looking good - I'll make a call around 4pm. thunderstorms look to roll all the way to 7pm.

Sorry all - looks like we need to cancell, radar not looking good between 5:30 and 9:30 it's predicted to get atleast two thunderstorms rolling over us. catch everyone next week!

Good call. Great ride that needs to be done next week. I was thinking of almost this same route last night and then you posted it today. Great minds think alike.
