Macon Baselayer will attempt to continue the 9am Saturday training tradition we've had in Macon for years through Chad Madan's Peach Peloton. Baselayer will not try to recreate Peach Peloton; but hopefully some of the benefits of that good ride format can be perpetuated.
Starting in November, I'll post weekly Saturday 9am group road rides starting from various locations in and around Macon. Most of the time I won't be the ride leader. My intention is to serve as coordinator - arranging for different riders to lead each ride. I'll publish route maps and provide ride descriptions. And I'll attempt to provide some continuity and flow to the ride formats and durations.
I'll likely also publish mid-week evening dirt road rides in the Piedmont Wildlife Refuge near Juliette. Those rides will often be hosted by others that like to ride the PWR or sometimes not have a specific ride leader.
Wear a helmet.
Don't cross the yellow line.
Try to do what the ride leader asks.
Use you common sense and ride properly and safely.
Except in occasional attack zones, no one will intentionally be dropped. And we'll regroup after the attack zones. But these are not 'no-drop' rides. If you fall off the back, you may need a map, a phone, and a basic understanding of where you are in order to get home. It's your responsibility to bring what you need to survive off the back.
If you have suggestions for changes or additions, send them my way - this is a work in progress.
