Ride - Sunday - April 27

We rode with the Pequot Cyclists today. It was a really fun ride around Ledyard, no rain, a bit cool, but the hills really warmed us up! We tackled 4 big hills and many smaller ones. Two of the hills we climbed are 2 of the top 3 in Ledyard (we climbed Avery and Rose Hill, Baldwin is the other big one). The team road really well together. You can really see the growth in just one year! It's going to be a fun season!

Ride - Friday - April 25

We did a nice 20 mile ride down to Mystic today riding the flats. We worked on pace lines. Had a break to fix Xavier's flat. They are getting stronger!

Weather for Wednesday

Weather is looking good for Wednesday. Temps close to 60. Shorts should be ok, but maybe bring warmer top.

Upcoming Rides, Jerseys, Etc.

Hope everyone is enjoying break! Great news, our new team jerseys are in and we'll pass them out on Wednesday. In an effort to create a team uniform, please wear black shorts if at all possible. More good news is that new members Megan and Trent have been successfully outfitted with bikes. Our regular rides will be starting up this week. As a minimum, we'll ride Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. So, our next meeting is Wednesday, April 23. We'll meet at 2:30 by the tennis courts. We'll plan to ride for just an hour or so. Parents should be at LHS for pickup by 3:45 at the latest. We'll do either a 10 or 13 mile warmup loop (see our Rides page for route details). One final note... I would like everyone to lock their bikes on the bike rack, when possible (i.e. not raining). With our increase in numbers there is less space in my room. Also, it is great publicity to have the bikes out there for others to question. Of course if you forget a lock or it is raining, just bring the bikes up to my room and we'll work it out. See you Wednesday!

Here We Go!

It looks like we have 2 events planned before break....

The first will be this Friday, April 4. We will meet by the tennis courts to go over gear. Please bring everything you have. We will adjust bikes and take some test laps around the parking lot. We'll go for a small rid and then wrap up early.

Our first big ride will be next Wednesday, April 9. John Harris will be doing a fundraiser ride that day, taking laps around Ledyard. We'll join him for a lap or two to help with publicity.
