With the Northampton Cycling Club hosting the Tour of the Hilltowns on Saturday, our regular Saturday Morning B and C rides will not be held this week. Our normal Saturday group ride schedule will return on July 2nd.

The B ride followed the Tour of the Hilltowns race course (which is next week, 6/25!). The course is looking clean and safe. We returned home off-course and encountered a fun feature to navigate! Hope to see you ALL next Saturday- we need all hands we can get.
The B SMR ride headed up to Cummington today to tackle some 16% climbs. it was a beautiful route, but very challenging. Plenty of fun was had by everyone. BTW, Tour of the Hilltowns Needs YOU: https://volunteersignup.org/A94AB
Hot today? Nope. The weather forecast all week for today was like “danger, danger, heat index 191 degrees,”, blah blah blah. So, we decided to move ride start times an hour early. Although a good call, the weather forecast once again was wrong. The B ride went east to Wendell.
Was it the wind? Was it because the sun was not out? Too cold? Or maybe because I forgot to type the meeting time and place in the e-mail announcement? For a minute I thought I’d be riding my own SMR solo for the first time.
It was a beautiful, but cool, day for our Saturday morning rides. It was around 50 degrees when we gathered at Pulaski Park this morning.
What a great day for our first SMR of the season! The hills are all still there, and they hurt! But it it was all worth it. We had about 10 riders today on the B ride and good fun was had by all.
Another great ride report from the archives! This one is in early fall of 2013– dreaming of some good riding weather soon!
