      ZWIFT "Everyone Stays Together" Meet Up ride
      James Keeley
      This will be a 90 minute Everyone Stays Together ride, i.e. regardless of power the group will stay together as long as you keep pedaling. So you can come for a social ride, a hard ride, some intervals, its your choice. Other points to note:

      1. Since this is a Meet Up ride you will need to friend me in Zwift. James Keeley (#WCC B+). Once you friend me and I see you signed up for the ride here I can send you the Meet Up in Zwift.
      2. Let's try and all ride in the same jersey. For this ride let's use the Bike and Beer jersey. If you don't have it already you can get it by pressing P once on a ride and then entering promo code BIKEANDBEER. Then go to your garage (press T during a ride) to change jersey.
      3. We will be using the Discord WCC Channel A. This is not required but allows conversation during the ride. Link: Sign In

      Tush Tuneup
      Bill O'Connell
      WCC Away Rides and Covid-19
      Dear Friends,
      Due to the uncertain nature of this virus on LIFE in the next few months, I am approaching away weekends cautiously.
      The Tush Tuneup , normally in April, is currently scheduled (after the survey) on the first weekend in May. I am NOT booking any hotels at this time due to uncertainty. At best, we would switch to using Great Barrington as a base, and have 2-3 routes each day out of there. The primary fallback plan, at this time, is to do something like the Alice's ride, on one day only, and skip hotels entirely. The decision for the Tush will be made on or around April 15. Please check your email and the Rides Board at that time.
