    DE-MS Bike to the Bay

    Interested in hearing from others who have participated previously in this event.

    How challenging of a course?
    Climbing, how often?how intense?
    Is wind a factor?
    Rest Stops?
    Must/Helpful to know details?

    Thinking of picking up this event but would love to hear others experiences?

    Unless things have changed radically from when I did it a long time ago, terrain will not be a factor but wind could be. I just remember riding past what seemed like endless soybean fields. That's a pretty flat part of the world. The hills in DE are up north.

    I suggest looking at the White Clay Bike Club's ride list. There are ride leaders who run training rides for the event. Get in touch with them with questions. Here is a description for ride in September with contact info deleted:

    MS Bike to Bay Training Ride - Now Two Groups
    Two groups will depart 7:30AM from Peoples Plaza (at the recycle bins behind the Safeway) for a 50 mile ride at a fit and fun pace (10 to 14 mph) and 65 miles at a moderate pace (15-16 mph). Terrain is flat and we will have a short cut for those who need a shorter distance. Helmets required and bring a full water bottle with your bike in good working order. We will increase the mileage slowly each month to have you fully prepared for the MS ride in the fall. Ride leaders: 10-14 mph
