Most important is to say Thank you to everybody for coming out.
We had perfect attendance by riders and coaches, wonderful weather, and from what I have heard great riding.
I had a great time with my team and the times I got to see the B team they looked happy and in good form.
I think we should all very much be looking forward to El Tour with confidence.
I want to take the time to thank all the parents who where out encouraging their kids, riding with the kids, and just for being great. Thank you so much parents. All of you!!!
Let’s start to get excited and to do all the little things right. It is time to rest up and to day dream about a great moment to come. Please start to sleep well, eat well, and generally start to take extra good care of yourself. We are near the finish line.
Some will and can ride up there if they like. Richard and Carrie will be leading the ride to the start leaving the clubhouse at 6am.
I will be at the clubhouse at 6am ready to take any one that needs a ride. C team riders should get a ride with me, B team riders can, and A’s please don’t you can ride.
I may need help bringing people up there so if anyone wants to meet me with a car at 6am with possibility of driving others that would be fine.
The ride is going to end at Nathan’s house. I propose everyone bring a bag and change of clothes to hang out at the house so we can all play some WOW.
I want to leave the clubhouse at 6:15am. No later. The ride starts at 7am and I want to be there at 6:45am no later. I know this is super early, but that is part of what we do. This is the dress rehearsal so please be on time and ready.
Thanks , Ignacio
First thing: Shoot Out Saturday morning the 5th. 6:15am start, be here on time or no show. Breakfast after of course, you know if you should go.
Silver Bell Info: Everyone meet at River and Craycroft at 6:45am. Please be on time. There is only one shopping center at this intersection.
Questions: Does anybody need to get in the clubhouse before the event to get there bikes? If you need to is there a possibility that this could happen on Sunday morning and some one could drive Jade and her bike to the start?
We are going to have 3 teams out riding. The same teams and groups that will be riding in El Tour. You know where you go. The teams will ride different distances on Sunday. 30, 67, and 83 respectively. This is a trial run for El Tour. We always roll as a group and team. We are as fast as our weakest link. A team we are, as unit we roll.
After the ride all riders, family members, and loved ones are invited to the Franklins house to partake in eating and hanging. They live just down the street and will let everyone know how to get to the house.
I presume that the 30 mile group will take around 3 hours to do the ride. This is total time, stops and all.
67 around 4 and a half hours. Total time.
83 around 5 and a half hours. Total time.
These are guestamations. I don’t know how long your stops will be, if you get flats, if, but, what. This is a trial run yes, but also please take the time to enjoy the day and what GABA has to offer.
Also remember GABA is a great sponsor of ours so be extra polite, kind, and courteous.
