Hello,

My name is Cutler Cole. I'm a Chattanooga native going into my senior year at ETSU. I am currently an intern here in Chattanooga and will be returning to the tri-cities for school mid August. I've been cycling for a little under a year now and found you guys on google. If you all are accepting new guys such as myself I'd be happy pay my dues to ride with you and learn the routes. For contact purposes for further information I can be reached at cutler.cole@gmail.com. Thanks guys, I hope to hear from you soon.

Present forecast is partly sunny with rain chance increasing in afternoon. If raining/rain is imminent at start time, ride is off. If rain has past and roads are wet/drying, ride is on.

**Additional ride post for those unable to do Philippe’s Farewell metric (see Philippe’s post below)**

What: Sat Group Ride

When: 6/13/15

Where: Meet in ETSU parking lot behind Knight’s

Time: Ride STARTS @ 7:30

Distance: 80+/- miles

Route: To Gray to Baileyton to Limestone to JC

Pace: Determined by group

Note: Early start to beat heat and/or possible rain. One planned stop in Baileyton. Present forecast is partly sunny with rain chance increasing in afternoon. If raining/rain is imminent at start time, ride is off. If rain has past and roads are wet/drying, ride is on. Don’t assume route will be flat since it’s in the valleys. It crosses over several ridges and will have slightly more cumulative climbing (approx. 4,700 ft) than the 30 mile Roan Groan course.

Hi TCRC Crew,
As I have discussed with some of you, I will move to Thailand soon. I wish then to invite you to a farewell ride + party on next Saturday June 13th.
For this delocalized TCRC Saturday ride, I will try to explore roads near Abingdon including Hayters Gap climb.
Here is the trace for this (metric) Century Ride: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/8306922
The ride will start at 1:30 pm from my home: Roquiny family - 790 Birdie Drive, Abingdon, VA 24211, (opposite of Falcon Pharmacy and Mahoney's). I-81 from Bristol - Exit 17 - turn right and go down on Highway 75 - my home is about 500 meters further down. I will ask the Falcon Pharmacy opposite of our home to use their parking lot (tbc) as they are closing at 1pm.
After the ride, around 6:30pm, we will be pleased to welcome you for a walking dinner farewell party including a few Belgian treats and beers for everybody. Family and wounded riders are more than welcome too!
To ease the orgnazition of the day for the party and the cooking, please contact me by Email at philippe.roquiny@gmail.com or text me (276-451-8132) before Friday June 12th noon if you plan (you and your family) to attend the evening party.
 
A Bientôt et Vive le Vélo!
