What: Sat Group Ride (SGR)

When: 2/6/16

Where: Meet in ETSU parking lot behind Knight's

Time: Ride starts @ 1:00 (be ready to roll out at this time)

Route: To South Holston dam and back

Distance: 62+/- miles

Pace: Determined by group
 
Weather: Present forecast partly sunny with temp 43-44 at start time with a high of only 45-47 and winds steady @ 5-6 mph from the west.
  
Stops: One planned stop at dam. Water and bathrooms should be available.

Note: This is NOT a no drop ride. Tell Perry prior to start of ride if you’re unfamiliar with local area, are on-call at work, or plan to cut the ride short.

SGR Description: SGR is meant to be challenging in one, or all of 3 ways: terrain/distance/pace. How each SGR is conducted is determined by the riders who turn out for the ride on any given Sat. That’s why the pace is posted as determined by group. Regrouping after climbs/hard efforts and waiting for riders who puncture or make unplanned stops (for fluids, nature breaks, etc.) usually occurs, but may not. Individuals are free to wait in such instances, but the group as a whole may not. You ride at your own risk and are responsible for getting yourself back to the start point if you lose the group due to not being able to keep up. Except for riders new to this area or visiting from out of town, it’s assumed you are familiar with the routes/local area. If needed, you should carry a phone to access GPS or to call someone who’s agreed to assist you if you lose the group. However, no rider will be knowingly abandoned if injured, their bike becomes in-operable or they’re new to the area. In fairness to yourself, as well as your fellow riders, you should accurately (honestly) assess your ability to determine if you should participate. As a guide, you should be able to maintain a 16-18 mph avg on hilly terrain and a 15-17 avg on mountainous terrain.
