Fall and Winter Rides

Posted: October 9, 2015 in Rides and Races

October is when our weekend rides switch from 7:00am to 7:30am on Saturday’s and Sunday’s. October brings with it less light with later sunrises and earlier sunsets. Hopefully, it will bring in some cooler riding days too!

Most of our rides are on schedule, however some rides during the week has changed. Please visit our FACEBOOK PAGE for ride announcements and if you have any questions, please contact us through FB.

We will also introduce ‘ride leaders’ for our Saturday ride at CVS.

Saturday Morning Lamar Park Ride (Spring/Summer/Winter)

Distance: 33 to 45 miles
Location: Lamar Park Shopping Center at Doddridge and Alameda.
Details: All riders welcome. No one left behind ride. Faster A and B riders will sprint varying sections of Hwy 37 at ‘river’. New ride course takes us along Ocean Drive to Port Ave. and out to River.

Ride Leader TBA

Saturday Morning CVS at Everhart and Saratoga Blvd. (Spring/Summer/Winter)
imageDeparture time: 7:30 a.m.
Distance: Varying distances, 25, 40, 55, 70 up to 90-100 miles.
Location: Park next to the CVS Pharmacy at Saratoga and Everhart
Details: This is the biggest ride for the week. Most riders will break in to A, B, C and D groups and go varying distances and routes.

IQUACK group will go to the Naval Air Station Gate. This is about 25 miles at a slow pace (12-14 MPH).  The A and B riders will usually do the longer rides of 65 miles in the summer and longer rides in the winter. The A&B group rides are drop rides, meaning to please ride according to your ability. The 65 mile loop has an early 40 mile loop for riders who would like to go a little faster, but just not as long.

The longer 65 miles group will go to the river and have some varying sprints, but will regroup.  The pace for the 65 mile group will be between 18-20 MPH depending on wind conditions.  The 65 mile group and 40 mile group will start together heading out of town to 1604.  There is a split for the 40 mile group at HWY 44 off 1604. This will be a re-group point for the 40 mile group at HWY 44 and 1604 near Robstown. The 40 mile group is a no drop ride back to Corpus and CVS on HWY 44 to HWY 37 side roads to Holly Road.  Just meet up and choose your ride!
