Here’s the latest update on fall/winter training…
Even though we’re not completely firmed up, I wanted to announce that the shop we’re hoping to utilize is One Ten Cycles, on Hwy 62/110 in Mendota Heights. Their address is 1040 Dakota Drive
Mendota Heights, MN 55120.
Tom (owner) is very anxious to have us there this winter and is working on his basement to prepare it for us. I expect to take a ‘final’ walk through it this weekend. At that time I hope to come back to you with a firm plan.
The biggest issue we’ll have with One Ten is space. The basement area we’ll have available is significantly smaller than what we had at Penn/Freewheel, and this is why I asked for a show of interest last week. I don’t know the exact space available yet (I will be able to measure when I go through it this weekend), but I’m guessing we’ll max out at 20 – 25 riders, significantly less than the 35 – 40 we could squeeze in at Penn/Freewheel.
With regard to riding time, the shop closes at 7:00 (as opposed to 8:00 at Penn/Freewheel), so this will necessitate us starting earlier. I’m sorry for those of you who this earlier start time will affect. Once we get to the point of firming up the rider roster, please keep this in mind.
Thanks for your support and for your continued patience. Hopefully, my walk through this weekend looks positive and that we can get started ASAP!
Please let me know if you have any questions.
