East Shore Flex

Tue. 20 Feb, 2018 1:00 pm
Ride Description:

 

Stats:     25-30 Mi.

Speed:  11-13 mph

Start Location:  Koons Park Near Linglestown Circle

 

At 1:00 PM we’ll be starting at Koons Park for a ride that will generally head east along familiar suburban and farmland roads and then back to Koons Park via Rt. 443, Sleepy Hollow to the top of Piketown and then Piketown Road back to Koons. 

 

Believe it or not, the current weather forecast calls for sunny skies with a high around 70 degrees for Tuesday afternoon!  Most if not all of the snow should just be a distant memory by then.  The long range forecast is for much warmer than average temperatures for the second half of February to be followed by cooler than average for the first half of March.  So, let’s get out and enjoy the nice weather now.

 

I'll cancel by noon on Tuesday via email in the event of poor riding weather.
