June 20th (Sunday) Foxey Coxey Start Time Change.

June 20th (Sunday) Foxey Coxey Start Time Change.

Given the recent time change to another ride, the high heat expected, and the ride length.  I'm going to move the 9 AM start time to 8 AM for this Sunday's Foxey Coxey ride.  Please pass this information around to anyone you know plans on attending this event.

Please be aware that this is a challenging route that includes three significant hill climbs.  The toughest two of the climbs come shortly after the lunch break and include Coxey Brown which rises 992 feet over 1.8 miles.  For this reason riders should have at least a 39 front chain ring and 27 rear cassette.  Compact cranks recommended as well as triple chain rings.  At one point the Coxey climb bends right and reaches 22%.

I pre-drove the route this past Monday.  The only notable issue was on Reichs Ford where the road is being redone.  The route is passable (hard macadam) but narrow for about a mile.  My wife accompanied me on the pre-drive and we made some minor updates to the cue which is now dated June 15th.  No route changes were made in the update, just some up-to-date turn descriptions and mileage numbers.  Jim's recognition for ride author remains intact  current/wink

Again, note this Sunday's 72 miler from New Market, MD will start at 8 AM.

~Ride safe, ride hard!~
