When? See the ride details below
…After a long hiatus, the Cinderella Ride is finally back.
What exactly is a Cinderella Ride? It is a night ride that rolls at 9pm for 35-40 ish miles. You will be home by midnight or thereabouts (Cinderella, get it?) and face little-to-no collateral damage at the home front. That's a riding win for you!
Why ride at night? Because it's awesome. There are very few cars if any, you can ride center lane vs hard right, and it's like being a kid again and who doesn't want that?!?
Is it safe? Given I have crashed going uphill in broad daylight I would consider the Cinderella Ride "fairly safe". Riding at night requires a lot of lights, solid bike handling skills, and a sense for adventure. If you are no fun at all, this is not for you.
Are you serious? Yes. The first CR took place on 10/5/16 with 4 people..see the picture above!
• WHEN: Wednesday nights; rolling at 9pm
• WHERE: Holmes School, 18 Hoyt St Darien CT
• WHAT: 35-40 miles, back by 11:30ish.
• ROUTE: will be provided via Garmin for those that RSVP. Everyone riding is encouraged to have the route as it changes weekly.
• PACE: no drop.
• BRING: your favorite post ride refueling.
Hope to see you Wednesday night, Jeff

“Uncle Fred Skinner” Athlete bio - Fun facts: Fred lives on a high mountain ski slope in New Hampshire with his wife Virginia, with beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee. Fred does his long rides around New Hampshire and every time he gets home he has to ride up the mountain one mile with a steady grade of 13%! (You can actually stand leaning into the mountain in front of his driveway.) Talk about a way to end every bike ride with a 1mi time trial treat on the legs! OUCH! Fred swims in open water across Lake Winnipesaukee during the warmer summer months and is a dedicated athlete.
Kelli "competitive" Rantz - athlete bio. “I am a Certified Pilates Instructor and Movement Specialist. I admit I am a total movement nerd and gait creeper! I just love teaching movement through mind/body connection and balanced muscle control. I am fascinated by watching random people walk, run, and cycle. Lately (about 14 years), I've been really caught up observing incorrect gait and pedal stroke). I really do drive my family, friends and sisters NUTS!”
