This route has three distance options for you to choose from. Or, decide once you’re out there! There will be two speed groups: the Non-stoppers and the Scenic Group. If you head out with the non-stoppers but find it too fast, you are welcome to drop back and join in with the Scenic Group. Please indicate which group you hope to ride with.
We’ll be looking for someone to volunteer to lead the Scenic Group. Any takers? We tend to not have designated “Ride Leaders” for the Non-stop group because riders in that group are expected to be more self-sufficient, although we encourage all riders to be equipped with the essentials (route map, spare tube, etc.)
We’ll also take this opportunity to remind everyone that having a printout of the map with you while on a ride is important. It allows you to bail out of a route if necessary, and also provides a way out if you inadvertently find yourself lost. A really low-tech way of keeping it available to refer to is to attach it to your cable at the front of your bike with a clothes pin. Simple, huh?
Start time: 10:00am
