Title: Gears & Beer Prep Ride-75

Distance: 75 Miles

Start Location: Jetplex, 351 Electronics Blvd, Madison, AL 35756

Date & Time: Saturday, 3 Nov, 10:00 AM

Ride Leader: Lewis Harmon, lharmon@mchsi.com , 256 651-4537.  (15mph avg)

(A ride to prepare riders for the upcoming Gears and Beer Century)

Description: This prep ride starts at the normal Jetplex start.  It heads toward Mooresville, Belle Mina, Tanner, with a close fly-by past the Nuke Plant. The route is relatively flat with a cumulative climb of only 1426 ft. Riders are expected to ride as a group with the Ride Leader – Lewis Harmon.  Expected pace will be ~15 mph avg. 

I am going to hold this pace.  If you want to go faster, we’ll create a separate group at the start.

This route can be shortened to 57mi by turning around at Rest stop #2.

The 75mi route link is: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28865332

The route is included on the SCCC RWGPS Club Account.

Rest Stops: Store @ ~12.5, 28.7, 43, 62.4 miles.

Please bring a cue sheet and/or a map to the ride and also have the phone number of the Ride Leader. It is also recommended that you have the phone number of at least one friend.

If riders choose to ride at a much faster pace than the Leader or deviate from the route, then they are on their own.
