The countdown is almost done. 5 days until our first group ride on Saturady April 6th, 2013.  
Saturday Morning Group Ride
Saturday morning rides begin from the Hermann Youth Center Parking Lot at 33 Johnson St in North Andover Mass. These rides are for all levels of riders from 14 miles per hour to 22 miles per hour average.
This year we plan to group up into avearge pace groups of 21+ MPH,  19-20MPH,  17-18MPH, 15-16MPH and 13 - 14 MPH and each group will "regroup" individually at the church in Topsfield Center at 9.6 miles, and again at the Dunkin Donuts at Rte 1 at 23 miles (bathrooms available).
We also plan to have some interesting variations this year occasionally, and will change it up a few times to seek out a few different courses and destinationsto be announced.
TriFury Rides start from 33 JOHNSON ST, NORTH ANDOVER, MA  We roll pretty much on time, so be there early enough to pump up the tires and chit chat if you want before we start.
For the first 3 weeks we will roll at 9AM, then beginning on 4/27 we will move the start time to 7:30AM. It will be cool this Saturday, around 45 degrees I expect, and riding always makes it feel about 10 to 15 degrees colder than it really is so dress in layers.
Please make wear a brightly colored shirt and jacket. Motorists are not expecting bikes out there this time of year. Lets not have anyone taking the lead in the "TriFury Crash Award" this week, in fact lets try to have no one worthy to give it to at all this year? That would be nice.

We also have an incredibly pituresque 50 mile course with some nice rolling hills that is an extension of the 35 mile out to Crane Beach and Long Neck in Ipswich that we'll start doing in early May. 
Let me know if you have any questions,
