Do you have what it takes to hang with the Affable Hammers? If you have advanced group riding skills, there’s only one way to find out! The Elite Group will roll early, be in the parking lot and ready to roll by 7:30. The A Group will roll between 8:01 & 8:04 am. Look for the men and women in the red or black jerseys that say “Affable Hammers”:
The Elite Group will finish the 100-mile route at an average pace of 23-25-mph, figure between 4h:10m and 4:20m. The A Group, will be between 20 & 22-mph, 4:40 to 5:00. That’s around 38 km/h and 34 km/h respectively for those who speak Moose Latin. The Elites stop twice, the A Group stops four times. Please have advanced group riding skills to attempt riding with either group. Riding in a pack of 30 people at 20 to 30-mph is no place to learn how to ride in a group and riding like that is astonishingly dangerous. If you don’t know what you’re doing you can hurt yourself or someone else catastrophically. There will be plenty of other people to ride with who will be riding at a more reasonable pace.
The Assenmacher 100 is a great route for a personal best for whichever route you choose as you’ve got, at worst, flat to gentle rolling hill conditions. The volunteers are all fantastic and the rest stops are always well-stocked with everything you’ll need to finish the ride with a smile… or if you’re riding with us, your tongue dangling precariously close to your spokes. Heh.
We’ll have an outdoor after-party with coney dogs, chips and soda (pop), so come out and ride with friends – or meet some new ones!
