At 78 miles, tomorrow's adventure ride will be the longest of the season. The route will be an out and back with about 2,400 feet of climbing total so that should keep things manageable.
We will meet up at Mug Life Co. a little earlier - between 8:30 and 9:00 in hopes of departing at 9:00 a.m. sharp. We'll make brief stops as needed in Bennington and Fremont, but to get back by 3:00p.m. we won't be stopping for lunch. Please join us if you feel you've ridden more than 60 miles in one ride this season and can maintain an average pace over 14mph.
The ride is on. This week we will be celebrating the re-opening of the paved trail leading from the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge to the Wabash Trace. We will leave from the shop at 9a.m. and head southeast into Silver City, Iowa.
We will probably roll into town before any restaurants are open, so we'll take a short break, breathe in the beauty and head back to Minneola for lunch at Tobey Jack's Steak House!
The route will be an out and back affair totaling approximately 55 miles. If you ride with the group we could return between 2p.m. and 3p.m. You could finish earlier if you skipped brunch and/or rode ahead.
