    It looks like the weather on Saturday will be good! Meet in Whitehouse to roll out at 9:00 a.m. for a 40 mile (maybe less) trip to Liberty Center. We’ll stop for a snack in L.C. before heading back. Then we can surprise the Meanderers by showing up at The Buzz for lunch! Pace will be that of people who haven’t been on their bikes much over the winter… (Or we can break into more than one group.)

    Sunday looks like a different story. Unless the weather forecast of rain, rain, and more rain is wrong, we won’t be heading out to Metamora this Sunday. Keep your eye on the weather. If the rain does not materialize, meet at Wildwood for a 9:00 a.m. roll out and breakfast at the Country Charm.

    Sunday morning, 18 riders rode out for breakfast at the Country Charm Cafe. 

    The restaurant was very busy since we were 1 hour later than our typical summer schedule. The folks at Country Charm handled us with ease and seated all of us with a minimal wait. I felt bad the Mike Daum was unable to stay for pie. 


    Veteran Sunday Ride Leader, Ron Toneff was in the House and stopped by our table to say hello, before heading back to Sylvania. 


    The unexpected nice weather must have contributed to the large turn out. Some riders where shaking off the cobwebs from Winter, while a few had trouble keeping a medium pace, pulling the group apart. Those few will have their tires slashed prior to next week’s ride. All in all everyone did well. 


    Here is a snap shot from another bike club enjoying their ride to Tsuruga Castle in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. 


    Come on out next Sunday for a social easy paced ride and good tasty fun.

    From Rick Metcalf:

    "Christopher Crandall is the 2019 Winter Warrior Challenge winner. He was the only one to complete all 22 rides. Hubert Backes, myself, Allen Kraus, Ric Hummel, Jason Sheidler, Matt Cleland, Greg Rogo and Hugh Benning are proud to welcome Chris into the exclusive Spartan Winter Warrior Club."

    Twenty-one riders enjoyed perfect weather and a great ride down and back on the Towpath for the first Intro to Gravel Ride. One near miss of a suicidal squirrel is all I have to report. Greg, Chris, and I took off from Waterville to attend the Winter Warrior finale. Along the way we ran into John and Alan and had a short rendezvous with the Meanderers in Whitehouse. Great day to ride!


    The next Intro to Gravel ride leaves from Pacesetter on 4/20 at 9am. However, if you are up for a serious challenge, the Summer of Stupid opening day is riding Poto and DTE, same day, same time. Either way, you'll get a little dirty, and dirt is good.

    …we had decent weather to ride. And the TAB crew was ready to ride! 23 riders came for our first Adventure tour. It looked like no one forgot their riding skills, since we had a tight group and we kept a consistent easy speed. I wanted to keep it relaxed and social, and we did with a 16.0 avg speed and lots of catching up after a long winter. We stopped at The Buzz in Whitehouse for a food stop, and were joined by the Meanderers after their ride. A number of riders wanted to attend the Spartan Winter Warrior finals, so they bid us farewell. Our smaller group cruised back to Secor Park through the woods of Spencer Township to block the gentle winds. No Windsday blasts here. I had a total of 41.6 miles, but then my Garmin reads low. I suspect it was more like 42.5

    Of course, there were those first ride blues too – I took an early turn, tried to adjust, and wound up with a an extra 1 ½ mile detour. As Hubert says, “Bonus Miles”. And we had the usual, early year bugs. Craig Miller and I both flatted – Craig with a cut tire, and me with my first flat in 2 years. Nicole Sicha lost her rear disc brake on her  mountain bike. And Alan Frischman found he need to brush up on his gravel skills. But all in all it was a nice start to the season.

    Next week’s ride is scheduled to leave at 9:00 from Cyclewerks in Whitehouse for a 40 mile cruise to Liberty Center. Debbie Tassie will be your guide and leader. Be sure to come and join us!

    This Saturday is our first group ride of the season. Not only does the weather look good it is also a birthday ride for me. We are going to keep me young by riding 25 to 30 miles (not even in my dreams).

    Remember this is a no-drop ride and will stop when anyone needs to. Be ready to ride at 9:00 In Whitehouse. Hope to see you there.
