After considering the predicted weather and the Whinery route, I have substituted the Streams, Valleys, and Markets route for the Whinery route. The 55 mile Whinery route does not have a rest stop until mile 35 which is a too long for a hot and humid day.

For those wishing more miles than 48, I have put my metric version on the reverse side of the cue sheet. It adds the familiar Glenville, Jefferson, Seven Valleys loop from the Seven Valleys ride to produce a 64 mile ride. It also provides several rest stops for the extra miles.

I will lead the Whinery ride when the weather is more forgiving of a route with long stretches without a rest stop.

Ok. I bring the stand to both rides and give it to you on whatever ride you do this weekend.

Hi Jim
I have a Feedback Ultimate that you can have. In perfect working condition. I can bring it to one of this weekend rides if you are interested.

After checking at least 3 weather forecast programs, I have decided to move my Littlestown ride to Sunday. The chance of thunderstorms around noon is now up to 80% on several weather sites. Sunday looks much more promising.
I am sorry for any inconvenience that this change may cause.

I am planning on parking at WRP almost all the way around the lot. There are several pavilions back there that we may be available to us at rider's end. I will direct riders to the parking.

I know both of your bikes Janet. You should have no problems with a 28. If you had a short wheelbase crit frame bike, you might have trouble with a 28.

Hi All
Put SRAM eTap on my Parlee 6 months ago. In a word--I love it! I still ride other bikes with mechanical shifting (including 70's downtube friction shifters on my retro bike) so I know the difference. Just a little tap, no hard throws of the the shifters.
In fact, the eTap is so easy and accurate, the bike manufacturers (Trek, Specialized, Cannondale, etc) should be subsidizing the power train manufacturers so they can put electronic shifting on entry level bikes. A lot more people would use road bikes if the shifting were as easy and reliable as the eTap. No cables to constantly to readjust, no missed shifts, etc.

The big ring shifting is especially easy; I go back and forth on the big rings just as easily as I shift on the rear cassette.

The Di2 now has an optional fully auto mode. I would have a problem with that as I like to stay on the little ring even on gently rolling terrain. The intervals work out better than on the big ring.

I have moved the start time to 10 AM from 9:30 AM. At a 13 mph pace, that will bring us into the Subway at noon time; hopefully at about the time the All Pace Shorts are arriving. Also it will be a little warmer at the start.

To make the 47/55 All Pace Long ride more of joint ride with All Pace Short ride, I have moved the start time to 10 AM from 9:30 AM. At a 13 mph pace, that will bring us into the Subway at noon time. Also it will be a little warmer at the start.

Since there is another ride in this area, I have cancelled to avoid reducing the turnout for both rides.
