With Nick and Dave not available, I will aim to keep this ride fast, but mid-paced between the two group speeds, so expect a rolling target of 19 on flats with sprints and regroups to get the legs working on long segments.

If someone wants to lead a B group ride, LMK and I will run this ride at faster speed for As, but we can coordinate a route, in case anyone wants to drop back.

Route will be posted via RideWithGPS Sat night, based on expected wind. With current NW forecast, thinking of ride out to Munger loop.

Going to try to squeeze one in to a spotty forecast. If roads are damp at start time, but morning forecast is clear, we will ride at a moderated pace. If the afternoon rain forecast creeps into the morning, we will shorten the route. Watch for cancellation by 7:00.

This road ride will follow Isaac's classic Blue Skies route from Lombard to St. Charles (Panera), including the Munger Loop. I expect to hold the upper end of the posted rolling speed, with optional (read: likely) sprints, but anyone who knows the route is free to take a faster group off the front or bypass the Munger Loop. We will face some hills, rollers, and open road with narrow shoulders, so a road bike and some road riding experience is highly recommended. Ample regroup opportunities. No one will be dropped.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
