27 Jan 2015 17:33 : TTH Ride http://yourgroupride.com/index.php/calendar/icalrepeat.detail/2015/01/27/3016/-/tth-ride http://yourgroupride.com/index.php/calendar/icalrepeat.detail/2015/01/27/3016/-/tth-ride 411
TTH=Tuesday, Thursday and its  a hard season long ride.
Ben sent us this info.
TTH started as a lunch ride for HP workers, and grew to include people from all over FTC.


It leaves at 11:07a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays from the Specialized Store parking lot on the corner of Ziegler and Harmony.  There are a handful of different routes we ride, South and East through Windsor, and then North on 257, or South around the Walmart Dist. center (famously called the Wally ride).  Other times we head north through Timnath and around the Bud plant, or up Vine.


It is a fast ride with usually a decent warm-up before things get amped up...but when they do, you best hang on for dear life.  It's a friendly ride, but everyone that shows up knows that it's a full-drop ride, no waiting.


I run a check-in page for those interested in seeing who's showing up that day.  Send me an e-mail, and I'll add you to the list of riders, and you'll get a reminder e-mail every ride day.
The page is here (you need to be on the list to be recognized to check in):

30 Jan 2015 17:33 : PACK THE COURTROOM EVENT PLANNED FOR PEGGY BROWN SENTENCING http://yourgroupride.com/index.php/calendar/icalrepeat.detail/2015/01/30/3562/-/pack-the-courtroom-event-planned-for-peggy-brown-sentencing http://yourgroupride.com/index.php/calendar/icalrepeat.detail/2015/01/30/3562/-/pack-the-courtroom-event-planned-for-peggy-brown-sentencing

On June 14th Jeff Wicks was left on the side of the road with life threatening injuries by Peggy Brown. Brown had turned in front of Wicks with her car as he was riding his bike in Loveland, after Brown realized that she had hit the cyclist, she left the scene, she left Jeff on the pavement with the real possibility of dying in the middle of the road, alone. If it wasn't for a witness following her and calling police, she may never have been caught. She may never had been brought to potential justice. Luckily Jeff and his family are recovering but they have been through hell and back. The cycling community needs to send a message that it not ok to leave husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, daughters and sons on the side of the road to fend for themselves. 

On January 30th, Peggy Brown will be sentenced for the hit and run. The Wicks' family is encouraging the cycling community to attend the sentencing in mass. The justice system has a history of letting us down, we need to show the courts that we count and that we care. 

Sentencing is set for 10am Friday January 30th in courtroom 3A -201 La Porte Ave Fort Collins, Colorado 80521. Please be there a few minutes early. 

I will be riding to the courthouse, I encourage you to do the same.

Please bring your helmet into the courtroom with you but do not wear it. You are also encouraged to wear other cycling attire. 

This is not meant to be a protest or a critical mass exercise, rather a show of solidarity.

31 Jan 2015 17:33 : The Oval http://yourgroupride.com/index.php/calendar/icalrepeat.detail/2015/01/31/3312/-/the-oval http://yourgroupride.com/index.php/calendar/icalrepeat.detail/2015/01/31/3312/-/the-oval The 411
The Oval is a cold hard Colorado classic and the best way to spend a Saturday morning.  Plus it will make you pretty fit too.
The Start
Bring your A game to the Southwest corner of the CSU Oval right in front of the Statistics Building. The ride heads out at 10am Saturday mornings  The turnout is solid from early December until the racing starts in March or April. 
The Route
When this ride reaches its maximum distance of 80 miles it has it all. From flat crosswind sections, rollers, power climbs  to the long grinds.  The city limit sign east of Berthoud has become a hotly contested mid ride sprint.  This ride doesnt stop for food, flats, pee breaks or bags of money.  Last year I saw a guy loose a $30.00 frame pump and keep going. Now thats a training ride! 

The Finish
There seems to be some confusion about this.  Some people think hit is at the top of the climb near the Horsetooth Mountain Park and some think it's a sprint to the  speed limit at the end of the descent from the  reservoir on Harmony Road.  From now on lets call it at the speed limit sprint.  This give the climbers a chance to get away and the sprinters a chance to chase them down  Plus its the longer of the two options. Bring the 11 tooth.
