X-tend the season
Program-X, along with all other TBN outdoors cycling programs, will not be hosting or posting rides during the April Covid-19 shutdown.
Think outside of the Road bike and Spandex box
Think of winter sports and what you wear for skiing.
Do you have a ride you want to lead? Perhaps you were planning on doing the ride on your own, or with a small number of TBN friends. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll fit it on the calendar. This will be a "Leader's Choice" ride. A distance of, say, 50 to 70 km might be best. In the email, include the following information:
Since we do not ride with a "sag-wagon" or a "sweep", riders should be prepared to keep a reasonable pace (upwards of 20 kph) so as not to fall behind. Although we usually ride in groups, this doesn't always happen and so we ask that all riders come prepared to be self-sufficient. As a minimum, this means you should be able to read maps and fix a flat tire on the side of the road.
Riders need to print and bring a map and cue sheet for the route, or download the route to their Garmin or smartphone device. Cycling helmets are required for all riders. For more information, please contact the Program-X coordinator, at email@example.com.
