Ride Description:

We’ll meet this week at Memorial Lake, LOWER ROAD ENTRANCE, and ride about 25 miles of rolling terrain to the small village of Steelstown. There are a few hills on this route, but nothing too difficult and we will take them slowly.  Average speed will be in the 12 mph range. Park personnel have requested we use the Lower  Road Entrance because of other activities at the Middle Road. If the restrooms at the Lower Road aren’t yet open, we can easily ride over to the Middle Road before or as we start our ride. 

In the event of inclement weather, I will send a cancellation notice to the Saturday Morning Social email distribution list and delete the ride from the website calendar no later than 8:00 Saturday morning.  If the weather is questionable, check your emails, call or text me before you leave home. 

This is always a nice ride and I hope you can make it.

The D Plus Ride is starting at the same time and place, but going to a different destination at a little shorter, slower pace.  Refer to that ride’s email announcement or the club website for details.
