Ride Description:

We will meet this week at Memorial Lake, Lower Road Entrance, where there should be a ride for almost everyone. In addition to our regular C Ride, there will be a shorter, slower D Plus and a faster C Plus Ride. 

The regular C Ride will be a 30 mile loop from Memorial Lake to Fredericksburg and back with an average pace of about 12 mph. There are the usual hills of beautiful Lebanon County, but no killers. Ride with GPS shows a total elevation gain of 1700 feet. We will travel mostly rural country roads with the exception of a few miles of busier connecting roads.  We will take a break at the 11.5 mile mark at Matthew’s Public Library where restrooms are available.

In the event of rain, I will send a cancellation email no later than 8:00 Saturday morning. If the weather is questionable, check your emails, call or text me before you leave home. 

Additionally, Rick Radwanski is leading a D Plus Ride and Paul Piergallini is leading a C Plus Ride. All three rides are starting from the same location and at the same  time. The planned routes of the C Plus Ride and the regular C ride are the same, just different speeds. Refer to the individual ride distribution emails or the HBC website for details of each ride.  

Hope to see you there!
