Thursday Night Fast Ride

The Thursday Night Fast Ride continues in 2018.  The TNFR typically attracts a collection of Category 2-5 racers, followed closely by a bunch of slightly slower chasers.  This is the ABC "A" category ride. Speeds can average over 20 mph, including the climbs. The ride typically includes 2 decent climbs averaging a total of around 2000 feet over a 30 mile ride. Our ride lengths vary from 25 - 35 miles depending on the available evening daylight. 

Routes are published in advance, but we encourage folks to join our ride update list for last minute information. Routes are often re-routed or changed due to construction projects. Please check the route each week for the latest information.
Since routes are published in advance and we're in the information age, we do not provide maps to start the ride. Our routes have all been created using the Ride with GPS app. For those with GPS units we encourage you to download the current link to your GPS unit. If you'd like a printed copy of the cue sheet, please access the information on-line ahead of the ride and find a printer.

We invite any new first time riders to the ride to test their mettle against the TNFR crew, but ask returning riders to become members of the club.
We consider this ride to be a two-drop ride.  We'll ride together through the valley, then head up the steep valley climbs and regroup.  If you get dropped a second time, we don't expect the group to wait again.  However, some of us in the chaser crowd will make sure you successfully make it back to the quarry. No one will be left behind.
