Ride Pace:

Normal ride pace speeds don’t apply on the sand.  Expect an energetic “B” pace on a fat tire bike, more energy is required on a mountain bike.  Expect 10 mph or so downwind and 7 mph or so upwind and slower if the wind is especially strong.  The ride leader will regroup riders at various locations along the route.  No one will be left behind.
