Would anyone be interested in coming out to N. Dallas (most likely a Plano or Allen start location if I come up with the route) for a BF's meet & ride? After the more or less success of the 2nd annual N. Dallas Vintage Ride last month, I suspect we can get a BFs ride off the ground as well. Here's the deal:
1) Distance: approx 35miles
2) Avg Speed: approx 16mph
3) MOVING speeds: ranging from 15-19mph depending on terrain.
4) Route will include roads ranging from rural Farm-Market roads to Residential secondary and feeder streets / roads. Some roads will likely have posted speed limits up to 45mph. I will pick the safest possible roads, but your safety is ultimately your responsiblity. Helmets will be required.
5) It will be a No-Drop ride, however please make sure you are capable of the outlined speed / distances posted above. Route maps and cue sheets will be provided and/or posted before the ride date for printing and review.
6) With high temps already reaching the mid 90's during the day, and morning temps pushing up over the 70 degree mark, the earlier we can kick off this ride the better. I have a few different routes in mind for different wind / start location options. All will have at least one rest stop for water / etc. Be prepared to carry enough water for 17-20mi between rest stops.
We will be leaving from Celebration Park, Allen Tx on Sunday May 14th @ 7:30 am.
Meeting point will be in the WEST parking lot of Celebration Park, accessed from Malone Rd, between Exchange Parkway & Main/McDermott. Malone is approx 3 miles East of I-75.
