This route is a micro-version of the Fall Tour route with several good climbs in the beginning and flatter riding in the second half of the ride. Most of the route is on quiet back roads. There are several options for rest rooms, water and food along the way, but bring a snack. This ride will go rain or shine, unless weather conditions are hazardous.  Some cue sheets will be provided but you might want to print your own.  Riders can break into small groups based on average speed, so come prepared to read cue sheets.  I’ll be leading a group at an 11-12 mph pace. GPS directions and cue sheets can be found at this link. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28022474

Park near the Market Café, at the east end of the Wegmans building.  Park as far away from the building as possible to the east as a courtesy. Optional lunch afterwards at Wegmans Market Café  which offers a large assortment of quick-serve foods, like pizza, sushi, subs, a hot food bar and much more. You can even have a beer with your lunch now!
