Two Words about Tuesday Night Ride in Mason
About 16 riders, head out at 5:30, after 1/4 mile warm-up the pace is up to 25. First rider dropped after 4 miles; we wait two minutes. First flat at 30 minutes; we wait eight minutes. Second flat at 42 minutes; we wait ten minutes. 32 miles in about 1:40 twenty minutes after sundown, but riding less than 1:24 (maybe less than 1:20). Two words: Bontrager Hardcase. As the weather gets colder, the days are shorter, and you are trying to get a ride in before dark, ride a tough tire less prone to flatting.
