Sept 21 


 A New Season and a New Structure

Ride and Glide will now offer Year-Round Cycling and Winter XC Ski Instruction.  Every year, in late September, you need to join and select Biking Only or Skiing (which includes biking).  In the Winter we will have the usual Tuesday night ski classes and there will also be Fat or Mtn Bikes rides at Lake Elmo.  This change to the biking portion of the club allows us to promote year long biking.  Road riding in the Spring and Summer, Mtn, Gravel, and Fat in the Fall and Winter.  The skiing portion is pretty much unchanged.

See below for a description of the club and sign-up

Here's a definition of a warm-up.   About 17-18mph on the flats.  Take it easy on the hills.  About 20 minutes.  In other words you shouldn't be going as hard as you can. Caution:  Too slow is dangerous as the people in the back of a big pack keep running up on the front guys.  Just take what the roads give you during the warm-up.
