Easy Century (Imperial or Metric) June 12

teamCOPC
 

https://fb.me/e/2cWLZscHa
Please indicate attendance on the event page so we can help the restaurant plan for us. All are welcome to join. 

This year, we'll do our Cincinnati Century a little differently.
First, we'll start at the Camp Chase Trailhead in Georgesville, NOT AT EASTON. Riding through Columbus had some downsides, and this works great.
Next, there's a bridge out, so we can't go all the way to Cincinnati. Don't worry...We'll still get 100 miles in, but if you only want 100 km, it's the same finish line!
Finally, we'll finish at the Little River Bar and Grill (https://www.facebook.com/LittleRiverBarandGrill/) in Oregonia, a fantastic biker bar right on the path, with live music that weekend and a big patio.
The tentative route is posted at https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36172740.
This is not an official teamCOPC Ride.
This ride is NOT SUPPORTED by SAG, but we'd welcome any volunteers who wish to be present.
We have places marked on the route to stop for water and fuel.
Bring a packed lunch to the start and we'll have it at Xenia when we get there.
All riders must arrange their own transportation back from the finish line. Many folks stage a car the night before or plan carpooling ahead of time.
This is still the easiest century you'll ever do. It's even easier than last year's easiest century!

Wednesday Beginner Group Ride – We need leaders too!
They're not just for beginners, but anyone who wants a slow, casual ride. Seasoned cyclists are also welcome, with the mindset that we will not “push the pace” on Wednesdays. We start with a talk about road cycling safety, group riding protocols, communication and other important cycling topics. Then, we’ll take to the road. The rides are fairly short early in the season and get longer as the daylight extends. This group starts with easy and flat routes, and we’ll progress into some hill training by the end of June. Riders should be able to maintain an average ride pace of at least 12 mph.

Ready to roll at 6:00 pm
New Albany Heit Center - Rose Run Park Patio
