Tuesday, July 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. A cutoff on Crowder is available to make for a 21-mile ride. Since we have plenty of daylight now, riders may choose to add a nice run over to McDaniel and Cox roads, for a distance of 26 or 30 miles. The 30-mile route was popular last summer.
David Wood, Peter Cacchioli, and Steve Saxton lead the ride, assisted by Fredia Barry and Jeff Sammons. 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!
