This ride is faster than our other rides and is meant to be a “go-to training ride”. We keep the pace high but try to de-emphasize surging; this is a training ride, not a road race. Average speed will be 17-19 mph. We leave the Lamar store and ride a modified Dam Loop putting us right at 50 miles and back at the store at 11 AM. We may change the route last minute depending on conditions. We will regroup at critical points, but this is NOT a no-drop ride.
