As the title suggest, I thought we could use this thread as a way to post open invitation training rides. This Sunday, I'm doing a lakefront ride:
Start: Buckingham Fountain
End: Buckingham Fountain
Start Time: 9am
End Time: 11:30-noon-ish
Pace: I'd like to keep around a 14-18 mph pace
It's just simply riding the lakefront in it's entirety. It equates to about 36 miles + whatever miles it'll take to get to Buckingham and back (for me 42 total miles). Weather looks like crap for Sunday (chance of rain - 40 degrees) - from my experience training for marathons, I've found crappy conditions only make me stronger.
Sunday it is.

Saturday I'm already doing a ride to Two Brothers Roundhouse. So Sunday works better for me.
I am doing J.A.W.`s beer ride this Sat. Not a training ride exactly, unless one rides back rather than taking the train.. Will do some carb loading at the destination, that counts as brevet preparation, no?
Took your route sat and then some, it was a great ride, hope the snow holds off for you.
I didn't think that the weather could be worse than training ride #1, but it appears it will be with a 70% chance of snow and 20-25 mph head wind. I'm still going to give it a shot, but if its really bad I will cut the ride short.
I'm up for joining a training ride next weekend as long as it's something I can be finished with by early afternoon, to allow me to make an Easter-get-together commitment.
My weekend is solid booked. How about a Friday morning ride, this coming Friday?
I forgot it's Easter weekend. My Sunday will be booked as well. So, perhaps we could do an early Friday morning lakefront ride.... I have to be at work by 9:00am, so I could swing something starting at 6am at Buckingham. Perhaps, just another ride like training ride #1.
I don't think Friday morning is practical for me (I suppose I could, but knowing myself I don't think getting myself to Buckingham at 6A is likely) but I could do Saturday morning.
