Are you brand new to road cycling and want to get some miles in? This ride is for you!
NO DROP: Cyclists will ride at the pace of the slowest rider. We may modify the course depending on ability. This ride will be capped at 3 riders. Please RSVP if you intend on attending or you won’t be guaranteed a slot. If I can get another Ambassador on board I will raise the cap to 6 the idea is to have a 3:1 rider to ambassador ratio.
Presidio Sports Basement at 9:45am. Roll at 10:00am.
1,451 ft (This sounds like a lot, but most of the climb consists of shallow 1-2% grades with 1 challenging 350 ft hill. If you can climb up to the Golden Gate Bridge you can do this ride.)
Points of Interest:
Battery Townsley; Rodao Beach and it’s sandbar protected intertidal Lagoon; Baker-Berry Tunnel and it’s invaluable shortcut through Hawk Hill as opposed to over Hawk Hill.
What to Bring:
Helmet, fully inflated tires (at least 90 PSI for 23/25mm 700c road tires), a spare inner tube, a hand pump, or C02.
We will tour the bike shop and nutrition aisle of the sports basement pointing out commonly used bike accessories and why you ought to purchase them including:
Vests; Arm Warmers; Knee Warmers; Gloves; Chain Cleaners; Degreaser; Chain lube; Spare tubes; tire levers; bike multi tools; bike pumps; hydration; and nutrition.
If there’s interest we can also do a short clinic on road side tire changes.
