Overall Difficulty:
Strenuous to very strenuous

Details:
This ride is aimed at AB and A paced riders who wish to work on their hill climbing. Because people climb at different paces, we will regroup at the top of significant climbs. People can climb as fast as they want without getting yelled at as long as they are willing to regroup.
(Faster riders who wish to go ahead of the group may attend but will be leaderless).
Routes will vary by week and will include Challenges such as Grimes Mill, McCalls Mill (has a detour in midApril), Halls on the River climb and sometimes Clays Ferry.
This ride is being posted for 5 Mondays, through May 24. In June a different start location will be chosen.

Routes will be shared with those who request them.



RIDERS SHALL NOT COME TO A RIDE IF THEY DO NOT FEEL GOOD, HAVE BEEN RUNNING

A TEMPERATURE, OR HAVE AN ACTIVE CASE OF COVID-19
Riders must maintain current social distancing guidelines - 6 feet apart - before, during and after the rides. Groups are limited to no more than 8-10 individuals. If there are more than
8-10 in a pace group, the group must split, with start times staggered by 5 minutes.
Masks are required before and after the ride where social distancing is difficult to maintain, per state guidelines. Masks will not be required
during the ride since wearing a mask adds stress to the respiratory system. However, the choice is up to the individual rider on whether to wear a mask
during the ride.
