Ride Description:

Ride Description: Soldiers and Sailors Loop

Ride Classification: D/D+/Easy C. No rider left behind.

Starting Point/Time: We will start at 9:30 from Soldiers and Sailors Park (1 Memorial Park Dr, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055).  Park back by the swimming pool.  Be there 10-15 minutes early so that the ride can start on time.

Length/Duration/Terrain/Speed: 15-20 miles which should take about 2 to 2.5 hours (including stops) at an 8-11 mph pace while riding. Gently rolling hills.

Weather Forecast: The current forecast is calling for a high of about 78 with a 20% chance of rain and winds of about 10 mph. The temperature should be about 60 when we start. Bring water and a snack if you want one. In the event of rain, I will send out an email cancelling the ride by 8:00.

Additional Information: If you plan to participate, send me an email. In the event, no one responds, I reserve the right to change the starting location, time or to cancel the ride.

Lunch/Late Breakfast: After the ride, we can catch lunch or a late (second) breakfast in Mechanicsburg if anyone wants to.

Hope to see you on Friday.
