Ride Description:

Name:   Steelstown

Stats:    27 mi and 1,300 ft. climb 

Speed:  11-13 mph

Start Location:  Lower Road at Memorial Lake

 

NOTE STARTING TIME OF 8:30 AND LOCATION OF LOWER ROAD.

 

We’ll be starting at the Lower Road parking lot at Memorial Lake where bathroom facilities are available.  We’ll take mostly country roads to Steelstown and back to Memorial Lake.  “Modern” restroom facilities will be available at the start and finish and “rugged” facilities will be available throughout the ride.  There will be about 1,300 ft. of climb, which we have all done before, with a good portion of that coming on 3 hills.  No one will be left behind.

 

For directions, you can enter “Boundary Road and Lower Road” in Google Maps and it'll get you there.

 

The D+ group will also be riding out of Memorial Lake on Saturday morning at the same time.  So, you can easily choose between the 2 rides.

 

I'll cancel by 7:30 AM Saturday via email in the event of poor riding weather.
