Coach's Weekly Update - August 24, 2009

On Thursday, Chad, Mark, Kevin S, Joel, Dawn & I will be heading to Vermont for our Ride to Cure Diabetes. We will send a full report next week and if I can work it out we may post some things while we are away.

We will have our normal Tuesday ride at Southwestway Park starting at 6pm. The park is off Mann Road (park on the westside of the road). This is a 25 mile hilly route.

On Thursday I encourage you all to attend the Neboridge CIBA ride at 6pm. There are 4 different groups, so you should be able to find a pace that suits you. The route is flat and the groups go anywhere from 17-30 miles. Neboridge Bike Shop is located in the southeast corner of 106th & Michigan Rd. Wear your JDRF jersey if you have one.

There will be no ride organized by me this weekend, since I'll be in Vermont, but here are some CIBA rides ( that I would encourage you to take advantage of:

Saturday, August 29th 9am - 18, 32 and 62 miles - A little further south starting point is rewarded by light traffic, beautiful country and some HILLS!!
DIRECTIONS TO START: From I-465 on the south side of Indy, take SR-37 south to Martinsville. Turn left on Mahalasville Rd. (Ohio St) Road turns to the left. Go 1/2 mile to South Elementary School on the left.

Sunday, August 30th 8am - appx 20, 40 and 60 miles - Ride starts in Fishers and travels to Lapel then thru Pendleton and Fortville.
DIRECTIONS TO START: I-69 North to Exit 10, turn right onto SR238, then left (South) on Olio Rd. Start location is on your left (East). Three story building.

Sunday, August 30th 4pm - dinner ride, 25-30 miles - Start from Northwestway Park and ride to the restaurant. This is a social GT style ride at 14 MPH.
DIRECTIONS TO START: Exit I465 at W 71st St. Go east to Zionsville Rd. Turn south on Zionsville Rd to West 62nd St. Turn (left) east on W 62nd St to the park entrance on the right.
Next week is our monthly assault on the Neboridge ride so I encourage everyone to try and make it.

Down the road!
Coach Alex
