    ____________________________

    Let me start by saying I’m not looking for a rebuttal, or a debate. The SBRA board is thinking about shutting down the ride calendar due to the virus. If you are a ride leader, or a rider who feels like they shouldn’t ride, this is your choice, you know your own situation, don't ride! I know my own situation; I will make my own choices, and not be bound by other opinions. If the calendar gets shut down, and you still want to ride with me, we will have to do it by email, or texting in order to set up a ride. My email address is [bploetz28@gmail.com]. Or text me at 631.484.3490. With me, texting works best. All my rides will be a B minus. If I get slower riders I will adjust the pace. You will not be left behind.
     

    I have a ride up for today which will not be cancelled. For Sunday if it’s not too cold I have a ride up as well. I am an adult, I know my risks, I go to Home Depot, the food stores, the, post office etc. I’m of the opinion, the world is not ending and life goes on. That being said… If you are sick, or feel sick, for the safety of your fellow riders please don't ride today.   

    Today's’ route to Great River will change up a bit towards the end of the ride, if the wind is in our favor; making this route pretty flat except for 2 overpasses. We will go the usual route heading south using the Connetquot Park bike bath. We’ll work our way down to Heckscher Park, do a loop where one can stretch the legs a bit if desired. 

    The average pace for this ride will be between 14.0 & 15.0  +/- mph, or what conditions allow. The road speed will be between 15 and 17.0 mph, or slower if needed for safety concerns, wind and, all that other stuff. 

    Please DO NOT PARK in the Meat Farms parking lot. Use the west side of the bank if the east side is full. Thanks!   

    We’ll be making a rest stop around mile 19 at the deli/bakery.  The route back will be determined by the wind direction. Good Stuff after the Ride.  Not sure what good stuff; it's always a surprise.  

    Please check the ride calendar for any weather, or last minute cancellations which will be posted no later than 8:00am, if necessary. My cell number is 631.484.3490; call or text me anytime if you have questions about the ride
