The plan is to get 30-50 miles in, but it's hard to know the pace just yet. I've not ridden with three of the guys coming, one of whom just got a road bike and started commuting last week, so I have no idea of what to expect. I'll list the known bikes and see if that puts things in perspective.
- Scott - Cross bike with 28mm tires
- Grant - Road bike with 23mm tires
- Julio - Road bike with 23mm tires
- Pell - Commuter bike with 32-35mm tires
- Chris - Cross bike with cross tires
If folks want to go fast, I will volunteer to stay with a slower group, if necessary. I will, however, still want to get miles in. My initial thoughts are a pace of 12-15 MPH if the wind is horrible, perhaps averaging a conversational 15-18 MPH if the wind isn't too bad. Maybe a wicked tailwind will give a quick 20-30 MPH on the way back! :)
