Bubba’s Twilight Tuesday
Twilight Tuesday rolls from Whole Foods at whatever time you can get there. Folks usually start between 4:00 and 6:00, and count on a couple hours of BASE PACE at the Bend. Early Bubbaz continue to roll for the Hillz at 4:00 with the plan to shorten that route a bit to join the employed folks at the Bend between 5 and 5:30. Couple of reminders for newer Bubbas:
* As in the past, restrictor plates on until February which means 23 mph or less. (If you simply can’t control yourself please stay out of the group.)
* Please park in the back corner of the Whole Foods’ lot so as not to interfere with the shops parking.
* Please run (at least) blinkers in front and back so we’ll know where you are. Certainly best to have a headlight.
* No TT bikes.
