ATT Ride - Too many chocolate bunnies

  • Apr 2, 2013 · 6:30 PM

American Tobacco Trail (ATT) Ride

Please read the following description. I'll only answer questions that are not covered in it.

We will be starting at one of the entrances near SouthPoint Mall in Durham.
Final directions to the meeting place will be e-mailed to attendees on the day prior to the event. We’ll be riding for about 1 to 1.5 hours, so about 12 to 14 miles round trip.

For those unfamiliar with the trail:

This ride is on an easy trail and it will be fairly short, so it will be a good beginner's or conditioning ride.

The American Tobacco Trail is a rails to trails (quite flat) shady, wide recreational multi use trail. It is open to walkers, runners, bikers, and horses. Mountain bikes are recommended, but hybrids or road bikes can be used. The entire ride will be on good surfaces; either paved or screened granite. We'll be averaging about 12 mph.

Helmets are REQUIRED for this ride, and you'll want 1 liter of water or so.

We will gather for food after the ride, for those who are interested.

Any drop outs on less than 36 hrs notice will be considered "no show"

Looking forward to seeing you on the ride!

    I have ridden the paved areas on my "comfort" bike many times, but not the gravel. Would that be a problem?

      Tom, a comfort bike should do just fine. Some folks have used their road bikes on the trail, but the small tires are definitely a disadvantage.

    Haven't ridden in a year or so, but hope to make it.
