SBH Ride Updates

Ride to Lenise’s Cafe Tomorrow (7/6)
Author Last Post

OK, it’s going to be hot tomorrow with a forecast high of 110F, but the low is 68F. At the start time (8 AM), the temp will be 73F and will get up to 96F by noon. I plan to just do the short road route to get done earlier, plus this route is more shaded. I expect to get back by 11 AM on that route since it’s only 27 miles. I discourage people from doing either gravel route because the gravel sections are very exposed and the routes are longer. The long road route also is very exposed on Willow Point Rd. and Jefferson Blvd. For this reason I’m only posting the RWGPS link for the short road route here.

If you are heat tolerant and fast you are welcome to do one of the other routes. You can also get done earlier by not stopping long at Lenise’s. I also want to share my trick for staying hydrated and cool - fill your Camelbak with ice and enough water to cover the ice. It not only keeps the water cool, but it also keeps your back cool. Again the ride starts at 8 AM at the northeast corner of the South Hills Shopping Center near the corner of S. Land Park Dr. and 35th Ave. I will be there close to 7:30 AM and you’re welcome to leave before 8 AM if you want to get done earlier.
