With the "re-opening" of many venues in the area, the Tuesday Stateline Spinner 5:30pm rides are resuming for those who feel comfortable riding in a "small group" setting. What typically happens is that a group of riders quickly breaks down into much smaller packs of riders which is what the case was this past Tuesday based on Craig's report shown below.
Relatively large turnout for our social distancing ride last Tuesday night. 16 riders met and kept their distance from each other being spread throughout the parking lot behind the bike shop. Some riders wore masks while others maintained the 6' rule. The ride took us directly into the wind going SE around and through Roscoe. The riders broke into 2 groups of 8 each at the edge of downtown logging between 22 and 36 miles.
Here is a link to an article that recently appeared in the Velo News about group rides:
Here's a message from the Captain of "Night Riders" Jeff Johnson:
On June 10th Night Rides will resume. Let’s don our reflective biking clothes and see who has the brightest bike lights and blinkies. We will commence from Beloit Bicycle Company parking lot at 7:00 p.m.(the sun will not set until 8:30). Remember, these are slow rides – 22 miles in the city, and take approximately two hours. Join us! Mark your calendars for the other rides this summer, July 8th and August 12th.
Here are a couple of photos from past Night Rides:
For those interested, on Sunday May 31st you might want to mark your calendar to watch/record the 2nd episode of the ESPN 30 for 30 program on Lance Armstrong. It starts @ 9pm Eastern Time.
