For anyone interested in riding their bikes at the expense of friends, family, and sanity, here’s a lineup of local fun stuff for the next few months.

The Spring brevets are pretty typical southwestern PA terrain: daunting to those from flatter parts of the world, but nothing abnormal to those who’ve ridden around here.

The AMCUP series is a challenge series (AKA “just plain mean”), with lots of time spent climbing ridges in the Laurel Highlands.

The training rides are CTC-focused, and are more intended to shake out any equipment or ergonomic problems beforehand than to be one’s primary fitness training. I’ll likely add a short night ride to the mix as well, so people will have an opportunity to test out lighting systems and whatnot on some nice rural roads.

Pace on brevets == whatever you feel comfortable riding. Minimum around 10 mph to beat time cutoffs.

Pace on CTC training rides == whatever the slowest person who shows up can sustain. Those will be no-drop, although I’ll shorten the ride or split the group if time gets tight for some reason.

Pace on CTC == whatever you feel like. Seriously. Take 72 hours if ya feel like it. Or 24. Whichever.

Pace on Calvins Challenge == No matter how fast you are, someone’s probably faster. The big dogs roll in the mid-20s.
