Has anyone done this? I happened to find it on the calendar. It says medium to hard ride. People have different definitions of that. Anyone care to check it out if I can get out of work early enough?

I was wondering since October. Never tried it. It looks like C,C+/3 or C/C+/2.

I remember someone posted during the summer that they tried the ride but no one was there. They waited about 45 minutes and then left.

(edit) I think the problem was 2 rides at the same time on the same day less than a mile apart.

I sent an email this morning trying to parse the pacing and what it would mean relative to my current fitness level. No response just yet, but was less than 3 hours ago. Will let you know if I do hear something!

@byogman Take a look here — http://wpwbikeclub.org/?page_id=34 — this was an orriginal classification for a lot of rides. Just remember that C/3/25 (just an example) means average speed 12-15 mph, rolling hills (1-3 similar River View Park From Woods to Perrysville or Greenfield from secont to Hazzelwood), 25 mile long. It tells you that total time including waiting people at certain points (after 1 hour or at the crest) would be about 1.8-2.5 hours. But this is expectations. TeamDecaf rides always has at least two groups (fast and not so fast :)) and it’s up to you to chose an appropriate one. PMTCC always has points where people get together and continue. Collin (cburch) leads a nice MTB group on Fridays.

PS edited speed 2 to 12.

@ boostuv – The group that rode on Thursdays seems to have disappeared. I think the main leader had other commitments. The way I remember it about 3-4 years ago, there were maybe only 5-6 people riding in the group. They were in the very fast, lotta-hills riding style.

@TeamDecaf I wonder if Kevin Wahila was one of them…

I rode the team caffeine rides on Thursdays about a handful of times a year for the past 4 or 5 years until it fell apart this last summer. Even though I was one of the slowest or the slowest each time, it was still a fun ride. I know it’s a long ways away, but I’d like to see it get revived in the spring and I’d probably go more often since I now live 2 blocks from TDO.

I would be up for this, though I would be afraid that the fast group on Tuesdays wouldn’t show up on Tuesdays anymore.

I tried this once last year too, nobody showed up. I’m surprised it’s still on the calendar.

Maybe it’s viable though… now that we have an interested group thinking about it all at once?

I’d certainly like a Tuesday ride after work, I hate Tuesdays and need something to look forward to.

Thoughts?
