TMD Stage 10 Salt River Ford **START TIME CHANGE**

11 Jun 2017 7:51 PM | Tony Darnell

The Stage will be on Saturday the 17th.


With the expected high temp possibly being 90*+ and the addition of the river ford, the out and back to the Four Roses Distillery along with the usual three scheduled stops the time limit will be changed from 10 to 10 1/2 hours. This will however not allow us to relax the pace.  A total of 2 hours of non-moving time will require you to ride a 12.2 mph pace and if you stay idle for 3 hours you will need to ride a 14 mph average speed.  This century will not be for the ill prepared, if in doubt about being up to the challenge, consider this ride is on the long side for a century and it has 5600'+ of climb on typical Ky roads.

As for crossing the Salt River, I ride in sandals and will cross the water in them; however most of you have those nice cycling shoes.  You may wish to bring water shoes, old tennis shoes, or a pair of those rubber soled socks, like you would wear around the house, for the crossing.

As with the past few stages the weather forecast keeps looking better with each day we get closer to Saturday.

The ride starts at Pope Lick Park (formerly Floyd's Fork Park)

I will post the link to the gps file soon as there seems to be a need to give it further review.

---REMEMBER------7:00---WHEELS ROLL AT 7:15---
