Mighty Cyclists,

We are looking at another GREAT evening for cycling on Thursday, 5/18. Cooler temps, dry conditions and moderate winds. 

We will be beta-testing a new group for the next few weeks, Group 3.5 (Xtra Spicy 2/Bold Picantes - Beta Test Group)

  • Where Xtra Spicy has been pushing the 21 mph envelope, the goal of this group will be 20 mph +
  • This should be a good group for riders who may be struggling with Extra Spicy and too strong for Spicy Plus.
  • Rolling averages will be 20 to 22 mph + depending on the wind and group dynamics.
  • The goal will be to get stronger and more skilled at riding with a faster group. So you will be pushed at times.
  • This group is not represented in the online sign up yet.  If this works out and the group becomes "official" I will update the online sign up at that point.  Just sign up under Extra Spicy for now.

Please be signed in and at the starting point by 18:25 for pre-ride announcements.  With the extra group we need to have Hot 1 rolling at 18:30.

Remember you can sign in electronically at
