A good solid 85 for the last ride of 2011. We'll rotate on Ramah Church and attack on King/Hill/Shi/Moore. The store stop will be at mile 47 on Johnstonville Road. This is Baselayer 8. We only have 5 more to go before bike practice is done for the winter.

John Dove will lead us on a short ride on Christmas Eve. We'll have an early 8am start from Mt. Zion Church. We'll do 58 miles with no store stop, so you'll be showered and in your Santa hat by noon.
We'll play foxes and hounds - it'll go like this:
1 - we'll pick a few foxes and divide the rest into packs of hounds.
2 - foxes will start riding at 30-second intervals.
3 - about 2.5 minutes later, each chasing pack of hounds will start at 30-second intervals to chase down their assigned fox. (Chase groups can't drop any hounds or they lose.)
4 - The catch times will be recorded.
5 - The fox who stays away the longest wins the fox contest, and hounds who make the catch quickest win the hounds contest.
We'll do this loop clockwise with a chase starting on Maynard's Mill and will do a second chase starting just past Juliette. (bikemap.net is acting squirrely for some reason, so it might not look right below. The route goes out Estes, Zebulon, Maynards Mill, Reedy Creek, Rumble and Lee King up to Juliette Rd, over to Jarrell Plantation Rd, and back on Taylor, Pea Ridge, and Klopfer.)

Charlie will lead us on an 82-mile loop from Geico through Allentown on Saturday, December 17th. We'll do a store stop in Allentown at mile 38. An attack zone will begin at the left turn onto Antioch Church Rd at mile 69 and finish at the county line sign on Davis Rd near mile 76. There are two turns in the attack zone, so study the route in case you're off the front or off the back.
