Ride Committee Updates

Hello ACE! As your newly appointed Ride Chair, I have been watching our Christmas Lists and our New Year’s Resolutions. I have a few of my own, and I want to provide some highlights and a brief overview of the Ride Committee’s activities and goals as we look ahead this year. 

Over the past month or so, I have assembled a Ride Committee, and members of that committee represent geographical areas of ACE’s region as well as the Committee’s various activities and areas of responsibility. Thanks to everyone for saying “yes” to serve ACE. Your passion for our sport and club is very evident. 

We have developed a list of Ride Leaders, and our goal is to have many more rides that have Ride Leaders. Thanks also to each of you for stepping up and agreeing to be a Ride Leader! If I have missed you and you want to be a Ride Leader, please let me know.

As a part of "ACE University", Ride Leader Training is under development, and a formal program will be offered soon. Ride classification is also under review, and we will be developing more detailed ride descriptions based not only on pace, but on ride length, difficulty and terrain.

Soon there will be a new ACE “featured ride” every Saturday in Huntington that is being developed around the concepts of set scheduled starting points, set start times, set rotating routes, and scheduled (trained) Ride Leaders. The ride will have at least two groups, both with leaders, and possibly two routes based on rider capability. Mapping and cue sheets will be provided for each ride.

There will also be a new set Sunday Huntington ride, casual pace, that will also have Ride Leaders. This ride will be much like the Sunday Ashland ride to Starbucks in Huntington. The two rides could possibly meet and join at a halfway point. 

This is just a brief teaser. There is much, much more in the works, and you will be hearing from me throughout the year. Ride safe, ride frequently, and ride together!

Time to Ride!
