Riders wear helmet. Keep right of centerline.
Slow riders should gather behind the B's and consider time of sundown to determine if ride should be shortened.
Guys and Gals,
Please put this on your forums and yahoo groups.
For safety, I would like to start having the start of the training races begin at the split (where the time trials start).
We would do 3 laps (clockwise). We would still start at 5:30.
Please spread the word.
Great thing is if anyone gets dropped they can ride backwards to catch back on. They can also still make it if they come late and they can leave early if they have to- this makes it a great way for new riders to get involved.
