Hey all! I wanted to revisit a suggestion that Ron made in his post about the brunch ride – that maybe that’s something we should consider doing more often. Not going to Ron and Noreen’s and expecting brunch every time! (although it would be fabulous because the food and hospitality is amazing!!!) But what about maybe having a split ride like that about once a month (maybe the first Saturday of the month? or whenever but on a regular sort of schedule). There’d be the usual scheduled ride – likely longer and faster paced and then a ride that starts a bit later, not as long, perhaps not as fast..and both groups would meet up in Steinbach for breakfast at a set time.
I think this will encourage some to come out who don’t usually manage to make it out whether just because they don’t have the time, aren’t early risers, are a bit intimidated by the pace we sometimes set, whatever the reason.
And I need to emphasize it would be in ADDITION to the regular scheduled ride; there are times that I also love to push the pace and my endurance with the rest of you speed demons! That’s how I get stronger. 🙂 And I know the appeal of grabbing breakfast in the various, awesome little towns around us. That wouldn’t change for 3 out of the 4 Saturdays a month.
