JVC mountain bikers,
I encourage you to make it down to the downtown races going on Thursday and Friday. I will not be at the MTB ride.
If the weather holds, you can ride off road Thursday (6/17).
WHERE: Rockport Park – Pool parking lot
WHEN: Be ready to ride at 6:00 pm
All riders must be JVC members: https://veloclub.org/register/
The group will most likely split into at least two groups (“Race” and “Casual”).
- Race Group – Riders choosing to ride in the “Race” group should keep in mind that they are responsible for themselves and that the group may not stop to regroup or wait for slower riders.
- Casual Group – Riders choosing to ride in the “Casual” group are expected to keep the group intact. This means riders in the “Casual” group should either occasionally stop and wait for the slowest riders to catch up – OR – be willing to ride the slowest rider’s pace.
- Women’s Group – This group does not ride every Thursday, but if enough women are present there may be a women’s group ride. Show up and check it out.
All groups will come together twice during the evening. This gives riders who are not able to be in the pool parking lot by 6:00 two chances to meet the group at later times and also gives riders who have lost their groups chances to find them again.
- 6:30 – Regroup or late start in the gravel parking lot on Rockport Road (near the railroad crossing on Rockport Rd)
- 7:15 – Regroup at the top of Onion Hill (not far from the Rockport Park Drive entrance)
The ride will be cancelled if it rains after 10:00 am tomorrow.
Please be considerate of your fellow riders by being prepared, by being prompt, and by only riding off-road when the conditions are appropriate. Please also be respectful of fellow park and trail users.
Bob and I will be at the downtown races.
