    Beginner ride

    Hi, this is Paula and I would like to encourage beginners to come out for the Thursday night ride. I've just been riding just a year, so far and am willing to share all the cycling 'how to' I have learned. The Sunday ride is great too. It's forming up into as many as 3 skill levels...I could sure use some company bringing up the rear!

    See you Thursday!
    Paula

    too early and a high profile job offer in DC

    see ya'll I guess. I got to Lion's Park about 645 PM tonight thinking the ride was at 7. Of course the lot was full and everyone gone since the ride is at 6. Oh well--I have a job that wont afford me the opportunity to make it back to Temple to ride by 6. It stays light til what-- 845 now--oh well--dont really wanna ride by myself.

    on another note tomorrow I will receive a job offer only extended to 15 MBA applicants nationwide (out of usually 400+ received every year). I received a heads up today. With Dept of Labor job in D.C. What to do? What to do?

    Thursday - 6 pm start from the Mayborn Center. 12 - 25 miles. No drop ride. I believe Paula will be leading this ride.

    Saturday - 9 am start from Lion's Park, behind the ball fields. Varying distance. Pace can get quick.

    Sunday - 1:30 pm start from Bell County Expo Center. 20 - 30 miles. No drop ride.

    Good luck in the job offer. I limit my solo rides during the week to about a hour. Try not to venture too far due to the crazy a$$ drivers in the Killeen area.
    Just Ride!

    The Tuesday ride is going at 5:30 I believe and the Thursday ride will end, if it's still going, when the time changes.

    PM me your email, or email me at bellcountybikeclub at gmail.com and I'll add you to the list. I haven't been making the rides, so I will have to verify the times and let you know.

    It is male and female. The typical meet up is at the northeast corner of the Expo lot. If the Expo is crowded, the meeting place is the Quix at I35 and Loop 121.

    We have been riding from Lion's Pool at 9 on Sundays to beat the heat. That pace can be around 18 or so, if you do that. If not, email bellcountybikeclub at gmail.com and we can work to get you a more suitable ride.

    the slowest cyclist on the ride will not be left behind.

    in other words someone will hang back and ride with the slowest or the group will wait up at certain spots along the route before continuuing---or some similar variation.

    that is correct. it is not a formal club with bylaws and dues.

    edit--but, and I think this is as with most all groups, you need to have a sound bike, helmet, and some sort of filled hydration device (bottle or other). It wouldn't hurt to carry a spare tube and a mini pump either. Just saying because I have no idea your level of experience.

    not sure about that--I occasionally hit up the Sunday 1:30 PM ride that leaves from at or near the Expo Center. best bet is to ask whomever is running the email list now: bellcountybikeclub@gmail.com

    What news, Pete??? I saw your first ever email to Bud the other day. If there is a standing scheduled ride, send it and they will post it. If there is just a ride call, just like you did, send the link to Mojo. The reason that mountain biking gets little love is that there are very few mountain bikers. The way to change that is to bring more mountain bike guys to the BCBC.
