VBC Virtual Group Ride - Mercer Island Hot Laps

Virtual group ride on RGT Cycling platform - it's free to subscribe and join the event. Details on how to set RGT Cycling up can be found at

Try to be logged into RGT Cycling a few minutes before the event start time. 

The route is Mercer Island Hot Laps which is normally the Thursday evening ride that Cascade Club hosts. The course is 12.6 miles with 709ft of elevation. The event is set for 4 laps with 3 laps that are really planned, the beginning of the 4th one could be used for an optional cooldown.

The first 10 minutes will be at a warmup pace at or below 2.0 w/kg then we will be between 2.5 and 2.7 w/kg for the flat sections and 3.0 - 3.5 watts/kg for the climbs.
3rd lap will be faster but that pace is optional. The entire ride will be a bit less then 40 miles with approx. 2200ft of EG. If the w/kg range a bit outside of anyone's comfort range, I'd suggest adjusting the weight setting in the app prior to the ride.
Please use the Discord app so you can talk with everyone. It makes the ride so much more interactive, fun, and informative! See details on Strava or Facebook.
