There will be special plaques given to the top male and female mileage rider. The awards are named in honor of late RABA member Larry Skalak. Larry died suddenly in September of 2014 while beginning his 6th Trans-America bike tour between San Francisco, California and Boulder, Colorado.

||Downtown Happy Hour Ride
||2 (some steep)
||Michael Todd, 908.419.7322 ,
Description and Directions: Start Location: 600
East Main Street (Main Street Center Courtyard). Starting downtown, we'll cross
the river on Belvedere/US 301 and head west on Riverside Drive, we'll continue on
Riverside after a brief connection point over the Powhite via Forest Hill, we'll
cross back over the river via the Huguenot Bridge, take a short excursion through
UofR campus before connecting with Grove Avenue, which we'll take all the way back
What to Expect: This ride is meant to be a quick workout after a day in the office.
It is an urban route with traffic expected, we'll stay on an easier pace on the
heavily trafficked roads to maximize safety and hopefully push ourselves a bit on
the stretches of Riverside, UofR's campus and Grove, which are all bike friendly
routes. With total mileage of just under 20 miles, it shouldn't take any more than
1.5 hours. (bring a light).
|February 21 (Sunday)
||West End Loop Ride
Description: This ride combines elements of Steve’s
Training Ride, Thursday’s West End Manakin Ride, and Tuesday's Deep Run High School
Options Ride. There are lots of rollers and a few good hills. The ride starts and
ends in Short Pump so there can be some heavier traffic at the beginning and end
of the ride. Those that want can have lunch together at Vinnie’s Italian Grill after
the ride. Download the cue sheet
Directions: Meet at the Shoppes at Wellesley parking lot which
is located at the corner of Lauderdale Drive and Park Terrace Drive in western Henrico
County at 3434 Lauderdale Drive. The Shoppes are located at the second intersection
of Lauderdale Drive and Park Terrace Drive if you are heading south from Broad Street
and the first if you are heading north from Patterson Avenue
