If you are riding the Hospitality Highway Century on Sunday, and want to meet up with
other RR riders at the start, we are going to gather at the Burger King that is on the
opposite side of the building from the registration area. Let's meet neatr the drive
through windows by 5:50. Call me at 770-557-4318 if you can't find us.
We have a special ride coming up on Saturday, July 14! Andrew is turning 50 and
wanted to celebrate in a manner that is befitting of a cycling enthusiast (a little
suffering, a little pain, along with lots of food, friends and fun!). Therefore, Andrew is
planning a Norcross to Amicable Falls State Park and return self supported century. If
you'd like to help Andrew celebrate this milestone event, he invites you to join for
either the one way ride up which is around 52 miles or the round trip. If you would like
to join, please e-mail Andrew or me and we'll get the details out to you.
The next Gaps ride will be the front and will be on a Saturday. I'm targeting July 28th
with July 21st or August 4th as possible backups. If you would like to join, please let me
know if the 28th is good.

Every Saturday - Berkeley Lake/Duluth Loop
(check for the latest ride updates before you roll)
This is a great moderate intensity ride! We do Berkeley Lake "out and back" plus some nice
rollers around Peachtree Corners and Duluth. It is about 27 miles at a moderate (15 to 16
mph) pace. This ride is a great "first group ride". It provides an opportunity to improve your
group riding skills and become comfortable riding on regular roads with some traffic. It also
includes lots of small hills so it is a good transition from the Greenway or Silver Comet to
the reality of the hilly road riding that is typical of north Georgia. We often get some of our
more advanced riders who use it as a recovery ride so you can learn from experienced riders
as we go. It is a "no drop" ride, meaning we endeavor to stay together as a group and
regroup at turns to make sure no one gets lost. This ride takes about 1 1/2 hours. We
depart from the Robert Fowler YMCA in Peachtree Corners, just north of Dunwoody. (Go to:
for directions to the Y). This is a good ride for anyone who is moving from the Spin room to
outdoor riding as well as cycling veterans that haven't been on the bike for awhile.
*Please note that while this ride is a moderate intensity "no drop" social ride, it is definitely not an
absolute beginner ride. I'm assuming you have 1) a road bike, 2) a basic understanding of the operation
of your bike, including shifting, braking and basic bike handling, and 3) adequate fitness to ride for 90
minutes at an intensity that is equivalent to moderate jogging. If you are uncertain, please contact me
and we'll figure it out. I'm also happy to set up a time to work with you on basic bike skills.
(check for the latest ride updates before you roll)
As temps and the summer century season looms I will schedule longer rides, more hills and
more gaps rides. Our rides are usually pretty hilly so the average speed for the entire ride
is usually around 17.5 mph. This is mostly a "no drop" ride but if you can't hold a 17
average, you probably won't have much fun.
