Thinking of 2007: Five rides I want to do

It’s that point in the season when I start thinking about next season, and the rides I want to do. Here are the ones that are on my mind, at least for now:

  1. Bike Florida – nice weather and lots of miles, early in the season.
  2. TOSRV – this one’s been on my list for a long time, and now it’s scheduled on a weekend that works for me. Two centuries in a weekend – what’s not to like?
  3. Burnsville Metric CenturyThis convinced me I need to ride around Burnsville more often.
  4. A week in Italy – shouldn’t need an explanation….
  5. Cycle Oregon – an alternative to Italy.

I’ve also been mulling over what to do with the very popular Roaming Rides. We were drawing about 30 riders every Thursday, which made it one of the more popular club rides. It targeted folks who wanted to ride at
a brisk conversational pace (the “B” rider, in clubspeak), though we ended up with a mixed bag – racers
looking for a recovery ride, weak to very strong rec riders, and some
who were drawn to the social aspect of the ride. Overall, it was a
success, and now I’m toying around with some changes that – I hope – will make it more varied, interesting, and accessible to different kinds of riders. Feel free to toss your ideas this way.
