Tuesday Night Worlds
Ride start location: Vicksburg National Military Park
Time: 5:30 unless stated otherwise
General email/Facebook page: River City Cyclists
Other details: Rules & Guidelines: 1) we roll at 5:30 (not 5:31…your time is not more important than the group) 2) we neutralize the group ‘to’ the Shirley House Hill (not ‘to the top’) (i.e. casual riding for 1.7mi, if you need more of a warmup get there early to warmup..if you are running late, then you have about 6min to catch us) 3) We ride the entire park less the little Sherman loop in the flats and the cemetery by the Cairo (approx.. 15ish miles) then the Grave Yard loop can be added as needed for another 6miles.
You can make this ride as hard or as easy as you want. This is not a ‘NO-DROP’ ride..i.e. the goal is to “get fast” so try and hang on, record your time, try and get faster as the Spring/Summer go. If you need a group or a buddy system, then bring them.
