Fact #1: Saturday mornings are great.

Fact #2: It’s 2006. You can either tape or Tivo Saturday morning cartoons now, so getting a ride in is easy, and guilt-free.

Fact #3: The Winter Bike League rides started last Saturday. The schedule for December includes two more rides (Dec. 9 and Dec. 16). The skinny on these rides:

  • Distance: +- 65 miles of rolling terrain.
  • Avg. Pace: 18mph.
  • Participation: +- 100 riders.
  • Start time: 10:10am
  • Start Location: Carolina Triathlon, 633 S. Main Street (Downtown Greenville)
  • End location: Same as start.
  • Support: Sag van provided.

Carolina Triathlon opens at 10:00 am, so you’ll have a few minutes to buy energy gels and bars, gloves, arm warmers, vests, skullcaps, and whatever else you might have left at home or not bought yet.

When you get back from your ride, the Bistro at Carolina Triathlon can hook you up with a recovery drink, Endurox smoothie, specialty coffee drink, etc. The smoothies are pretty incredible (especially the PB&J and the Skull Crusher) so give them a try.

If you need to ride longer than 65 miles, come warm up with us at 8:00am. We ride from the store to Paris Mountain, do a little up-and-over, and ride back for an even 20-22 miles. The 8:00am ride can serve either as a warm-up or as a shorter ride if you aren’t up for 65 miles of riding this time of year.
