May 10 Update: Note the NEW route for this ride. We head down to Needham and Volante Farms, then west to Sherborn. Want to meet us at Volante Farms? Get there by 9:50am and you'll get to do the ride! We'll see you near the ice cream outside window - the group will roll up between 9:55 and 10:05am. DO NOT park your car at Volante, please.
Description: The Horizon Chasers is the Studio's longest weekly ride. The average pace is 16-17 mph depending on the time of year and the weather. We're riding for endurance, not speed. It's a steady pace with a food stop about midway on the ride. If enough people show, we can split into two groups with a faster (17-18mph) pace for the first group.
Proper Bike for this ride: 23-28c road slick tires, clipless pedals, drop handlebars; no aero bars.
Route: The route takes riders to Ride Headquarters to enjoy hot coffee, fresh water, cold drinks in the fridge, ice cream in the freezer, a few moments of rest before returning to Ride Studio. RideWithGPS link: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27470897
There is an ADDITIONAL ride option for all interested: each Saturday, Ride Headquarters is hosting a 36-mile ride starting at 11am. The way timing works out, if you want to ride down with Ride Studio, then join on the Ride Headquarters ride, then return at the end of this ride, you are welcome to do this. That's one great way to get a really long ride in one day and have it all include nice people on fun group rides!
Ride Notes: All paved. Food stop is at mile 32, Ride Headquarters.
Estimated time: About 3-5 hours depending on the time or year and the weather.
