Sunday, December 15 - Dolly's Dirty Doddle

Post by Rolf » Sat Dec 14, 2019 3:14 pm

We will celebrate all that is Dolores tomorrow morning with this special birthday route, followed by brunch at Pluto's around 10:00 or 10:30.

Dolly's requested route continues our growing trend of having several different Sunday gravel ride options. Ron's Bing Crosby crew will enjoy some proper gnarly MTB features and climbing most of the way up Mt. Work, in addition to some fast gravel.

Dolly's route will instead stay flatter and favour flow and less technical terrain—a good route for roadies new to gravel. Pace will be somewhere between mellow and frantic, with an emphasis on consistency and not redlining anyone longer than they want to be!

To leave some contingency for mechanicals and to ensure brunch remains a leisurely affair, we'll leave Fairfield Starbucks at 0700, Switch Bridge at 0720.

If you zoom into Dolly's photo it looks like she's got a little woodland troll stuck in the spokes of her back wheel. Is that the kind of mechanical you're worried about? I hear they're nasty!

So Switch bridge around 720? I’ll meet y’all there’s.

I’d you change the route to go out E&N, let me know. Else I may be waiting for awhile...

In for the ride but may not make brunch, depending on when we get back and the tone of the messages on my phone when I “remember to check.”

See you at 7!
