Evening bike ride.

If 6:00 PM is too early let me know and we can try 6:30.

This is a hard packed dirt trail with a gradual uphill grade all the way to the second parking lot. Depending on the preference of the group we can either ride the trail from the second parking lot to the end and return via Manning/Laurel street or return the way we came on the the rail trail. It's an easy coast back to the parking lot. There is also the option to ride back on River street which is closed to vehicle traffic for the second half of the ride back.

There is an out-house at both parking lots.

Bring water as there is no water source on the trail.

If you do not have a light on your bike you may want to bring a head lamp. Sometimes we are having fun and loose track of time.

Here is the link to the map.

I know that Steve and I strike an imposing and athletic figure but no worries, we are both out of shape and slow.  :)

    Weather looks good for tomorrow. Are we going to the old foundations just a little ways up the dirt trail? Coming back on River St? I assume everyone has at least a hybrid.

      Well, I would need to leave right now from where I am and it's very cold and dark here- looks like it's going to rain any minute- so I think I'll wait until next Friday. Sorry for the last minute change :-(.

      You can make it. We always wait a while i the lot and the weather is cloudy at worst. I hope you join us.
