BFSC Ride Schedule - March 24 & 25

There continues to be a lot of discussions, as the rides get FASTER & a Larger number of riders, at different skill levels, and the number of TT Bikes, on the Beaches First Street Cycling Facebook page about dropped riders trying to merge back into Group 1 on the Saturday and Tuesday/Thursday night rides.

Please make a path for the faster riders to come though either just to the left staying in our lane or to the far right. YOU MUST get back up to the peloton’s speed before you merger back in.

Also the Saturday, Tuesday/Thursday Night BFSC rides are a Road Ride NOT a Time trial or Triathlon. You should be riding a road bike not a TT bike. Please if you must ride a TT STAY OFF the AERO BARS!!! TT bike are very dangerous in a group ride, you have no control of steering or braking. There appeared to be a lot more than normal amount of TT bike on last few rides.

With the increasing numbers of riders coming back out to ride on Saturday, we have started back up the Saturday the Group 2, Group 2 will turn LEFT at Crosswater Parkway after coming off of Old 210 after the bridge.
