Ride Description:

Stats:     27-30 miles (1,200-1,300 ft.)

Speed:  12-13 mph

Start Location:  East Hanover Township Community Park

 

Note:  New Starting Time is 8:30 AM Due to Warm Weather Season

 

The warm weather season…I’ll bet you thought it was never coming during all those cold rides in March and April!  Well, it’s here and we’re starting at 8:30 AM in an attempt to beat the heat.  So, set your alarm clocks ½ hour earlier and meet us at the East Hanover Township Community Park located at the intersection of Jonestown Road and Manada Gap Road on Saturday.

 

This will be a typical ride for the area with about 1,200-1,300 ft. of climb for 27-30 miles.  Restroom facilities are available at the Park.  We’ll take a scheduled break near the half-way turnaround and other breaks as appropriate. 

 

The current weather forecast calls for partly sunny skies with warm temperatures.  So, be sure to bring lots of water.

 

The C+ and D+ groups will be starting at the same location/time for your flexibility in choosing the appropriate ride for how you’re feeling Saturday morning.

 

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