Hill Ride Tonight

We decided to change it up a bit and do a hilly ride in Ledyard this evening. We did Spicer Hill, Rose Hill, Geer Hill and then the long way up Spicer Hill.

Fun Ride this Evening

We did a quick 23 mile loop. It was nice to have 6 kids out given everyone's crazy summer schedules. We even caught Alex smiling on camera!

Donation from T & L Tools

A big thank you to T & L Tools for donating this awesome set of wrenches to the team! The big 8 mm will come in really handy with our Look pedals.

TT Training Tonight

With all the storms, we changed plans and did some TT training on the Pequot's course. We scoped out the course from the van and then in between storms, we had 4 riders give it a go. It was a great learning experience. On the way home, it started to rain again, so we timed it perfectly.

Two More New Riders

We had two MORE new riders join us today, Austin and Christian. They rode 2 of our CCAP Raleigh bikes. They were impressed with the speed of a road bike. They'll be back out with us this weekend. Next step shoes and pedals!

Three New Riders Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Thursday, we welcome three new riders to our growing team. We'll do our standard intro ride down to River Road. It's going to be another pleasant evening. We meet at LHS at 6pm sharp. Several of our experienced riders will be joining us, so it will be a big, fun group ride. Below is the route.

Another Fast Ride

We enjoyed another 17+ mph ride over our standard 25 mile loop this eve. We were graced with the company of Mrs. Froh. The same four boys from last night rode hard again. It's fun seeing them ride in a pack, and fast. Tomorrow we welcome two new riders. Good times!

Week in Review

We enjoyed a fast ride on Monday and didn’t ride yesterday due to the rain. For the rest of the week…

All rides LEAVE at 6pm, so arrive appropriately before then.

Wednesday - Fast A-Team ride from Alex’s house
Thursday - Fun Intro/Group ride from LHS
Friday - Fun Group ride from LHS (everyone is welcome!)

We’ll discuss the weekend as we ride the next three days.

Over the course of the last week, our club enrollment has gone up by 5 riders! This is super exciting as I can organize larger rides for each rider-level and when we do full group rides we could have as many as 12 youth. That would be a pretty big show of force riding though Mystic or visiting the Mystic Cycle Center :)

Two New Riders!

Super excited to have two new riders join us today, Zachary and Tyler! We did a beautiful loop at 17.5 mph.

Initial Pequot TT

Xavier and Joe did the Thursday night time trial last night hosted by Pequot Cyclists. The goal was to set a baseline time and then to have each individual work to improve his time over the course of the summer. Nice start boys!
