Team Nebo Ridge Three Reservoir Ride
Saturday, June 24, 6:00 am (3 reservoirs) or 8:00 am (2 reservoirs)
Nebo Ridge Bicycles, 106th & Michigan Rd., Carmel, IN
Challenge yourself on this tempo ride around one, two, or all three of the big Central Indiana reservoirs. If you bag all three, you’ll put in about 130 miles. If you bag two, you’ll be close to a full century! The ride is kept at about 20 mph, and you can start early in the morning at 6 a.m. and ride around Eagle Creek Reservoir. At 8 a.m. at the shop the “peloton” will pick up those ready to ride to Geist. After Geist, if you still have legs, the group rides around Morse Reservoir and then back to the shop. The ride stops 3 or 4 times for sag (at pre-identified service stations). It is not a no-drop ride so be prepared for a big friendly group riding at 20 mph and keep pace as long as you can.
