MEETING PLACE: Front of Nishuane School, 32 Cedar Avenue. Do you like Jazz? Do you like cycling? You can have both.You do not have to stay for the music, if not interested.You also can inform other friends and family members to meet you at concert after ride. The wonderful Montclair Jazz Festival, takes place on Sat, Aug 12th between 12:00pm-9:00pm, free, at Nishuane Park, Montclair, NJ. See link: http://www.montclairjazzfestival.org/. It features multiple bands and performers. Please also see a listed ride under C*, so we can group after the ride. We plan to have a fast ride, with some serious climbs, and return on time, to enjoy the music for the rest of the day. If interested, please follow carefully the details below: 1: We will “attempt” (and hopefully, successful) to park early at the parking behind Nishuane School, or along High Street, near the park, before they close the area for more cars. We will start early to have the spots. We want to park near the park so when we come back, it would be easy to carry our stuff. 2: Bring lawn-chairs, and large umbrella that you can stick into the ground to protect against the sun. This is VERY important. Previous years, the sun was a killer. You will not survive without it, if it’s a sunny hot day. 3: Cool-box, food, drinks etc. Food vendors will be around but you can bring your own. 4: Sunscreen and any protection against the sun. 5: Plan to lock your bike in the car after the ride (or bring with you to the lawn). The ride: No lunch stop, so bring some snacks, but needed stops for drinks and bathroom.

At 6:00 pm I'll offer a 10 minute hands-on session covering one or two bike handling skills, as in prior years. If you're on the cusp between the B and B* categories, this is an ideal ride to build ability and confidence while challenging yourself, such as learning drafting skills, to be able to move up to longer B* rides. We start this ride spinning at around 15.0 mph for the first 4 miles to the climb, ascend at your own pace (with effort), regroup at the top and continue. We regroup at or immediately after each traffic light or turn. B* pace on the mostly descending return route. Coexistence with other traffic on the Saddle River Roads will be stressed. Learn how to ride a paceline properly, and improve your group riding skills while enjoying the lovely surroundings on these summer eve's into Rockland County. Note: Ride will not go in rain or wet roads. Terrain: Moderately hilly 46-55.
