Comment from Ride Leaders
For a description of the ride please see the route directions below. We encourage everyone to make a copy of the route directions for yourself just in case you are separated from the rest of the group during the ride.

Once again, we will be pushing to ride at a pace similiar to what we would ride on the STP and so the speed will be moderate (14 to 16 mph).  The distance will be approximately 50 miles. The route will take us through a variety of terrain (country roads, hwy, flat areas, and HILLS). This will be a challenging ride for those who are not use to riding hills. The forecast for Saturday is predicting decent biking weather, partly cloudy with only a slight chance of showers. Just a reminder there’s only 7 more weeks before the STP. The training rides aren’t getting any easier so please take advantage of these great opportunities to ride, to increase your endurance, and build community.
