    I’ll be leading a regular “faster than casual” (moderate) ride on Tuesday nights if anyone is interested. The ride will meet in the far Wakefield parking lot (Audrey Moore Rec Center) by the recycling bins around 6:30pm and we’ll try and hit the trails by 6:45pm.

    Typically, as the weather improves, we will have lots of riders show up and we can split into different groups. This may also result in some rides catering to a casual pace whereas another could be a fast ride. The regularly scheduled ride will always be moderate: Brisk pace with enough stops to allow the group to reconvene. No one will be “dropped” (left behind) unless they specifically mention they are unable to continue (for whatever reason).

    Come on out!

    After years as the casual ride leader, I think I’ve finally graduated to this new level! Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t look great for this evening per se, but moving forward that’s the plan!

    Soooooo…let’s just say, hypothetically, the weather is decent, the conditions rideable…would anybody be interested in going for a ride tonight?

    Do these rides still happen?

    Indeed they do! And although you’d think tonight would be the perfect night for it, my family is in town and we’re doing an early Christmas tonight which means the official ride will be cancelled tonight 12/20/11.

    Here’s an overview from last week though: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/134506465

    Don’t let him fool you. Tonight “IS” a perfect night for a Wakefield ride. I got back from a quick patrol of both Wakefield and Accotink about an hour ago, and both trails are in good condition. The only trail that I could find with any real mud was the 495 race loop exit segment. (It was muddy at the end and had a 20 foot long mud puddle along the fence line). Everything else was in great or good shape.

    If you have the time to ride tonight, I’d do it before the rain comes in!

    Guess this is a little short notice, but probably comes as no surprise that the snow from yesterday melted today and made the trails wet. So, ride cancelled for 01/10/12

    Yep, yep, yep…you guessed it. As I’m writing this at 6:27pm on a Tuesday (Rainday), we clearly won’t be going for a ride tonight 01/17/11. One of these days… :confused:

    According to the “Wakefield is a mess” thread from a few weeks ago, things are looking up! With today’s sun, warmth and wind hopefully conditions will continue to improve throughout the day!

    Let’s meet up at 6:30 with charged lights and stick to the dry stuff, whattaya say?

    Ride is on for tonight, 1/31/12! (man, that feels good)
