Tuesday, Apr. 17 – 6:00 P.M. – Cool Springs Ride – Sharecare (formerly Healthways) parking lot, 701 Cool Springs Blvd. East – Each Tuesday evening during the Prime Season the HBC sponsors this ride from Sharecare/Healthways in Cool Springs.  This is a 25-mile route all the way down the new extension of Carothers Blvd. to Long Lane with its challenging rollers, over the steep Gosey Hill climb to Peytonsville, and back by Trinity and North Chapel.  Since daylight is short now, a cutoff on Crowder is available to make for a 21-mile ride.  When the days get longer, we will add the popular 30-mile route from last year.  Be sure to bring headlights and taillights!

Peter Cacchioli will lead this week’s ride.  The ride leaders this season, in addition to Peter, are David Wood and Steve Saxton, with assistance from Jeff Sammons and Fredia Barry.  This season, we intend for this to be a ride for experienced moderate riders as well as racers.  The racers and A riders will head out first and watch out for each other!  Then our leaders will make sure the B riders make it home.  Jeff and Fredia will ride with the more moderate C group.  Most riders will regroup at the intersection of Long Lane and Gosey Hill Road.  We want the racing teams to keep coming and training hard, but those who are not setting a time record are encouraged to regroup for a congenial ride!
