    The terrain was easy, but I would describe the pace as moderate. We lucked out in a couple ways - the dark clouds cooled things off, but the rain held off, so we enjoyed more moderate temps without getting caught in a thunderstorm. Thanks, Melissa - love these bike rides. Unfortunately there's not as much time to socialize on them, but I think bike rides are a good alternative to hiking in the summer heat, since the breeze is in your face.

  • Isabelle B.

    There are no more spots left. That's too bad. I wanted to join in the fun. I just got back from a trip overseas with another meetups group and was not sure if I could do it.

    July 16, 2013

    • Melissa

      I've added a few spots. Hope to see you there!

      July 17, 2013

  • Peggy

    Hi Melissa, I think I can get away from work early enough to ride sweep. I see you have a full slate, so I will check back in tomorrow. Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I thought I was going to be out if town.

    1 · July 16, 2013

    • Melissa

      Awesome, I've added a few more spots and would love to have a sweeper...come on out if you can!

      1 · July 17, 2013

  • Donna

    Sounds like a good plan. Thanks.

    July 16, 2013

  • Donna

    Hi, are you going to monitor the weather for that area in case you have to cancel. It takes me about 45 minutes to get there and didn't know if you were going to have a cancel time. Thanks.

    1 · July 16, 2013

    • Melissa

      Yes, I'll be watching the weather and will post here by 4pm. I'll cancel if the chance of rain is 50% or higher or the radar shows thunderstorms nearby. Hoping for sunshine!

      1 · July 16, 2013

    • Carl W

      sunshine and a cool front!

      1 · July 16, 2013

  • Donna

    So should I call you before I leave for the battlefield if the weather looks questionable?

    July 16, 2013

  • Melissa

    Please park in the lower lot (next to the grassy field) at the visitor center. The upper lot is for visitor's center guests. Looking forward to the ride!

  • kathy f

    You ginna have a sweeper for those of us who don't usually ride there and aren't familiar with the area?

    2 · July 13, 2013

    • Kim B

      I'll race you for last place, Alex. ;)

      1 · July 15, 2013

    • Melissa

      It's not a race, just a leisurely ride.

      July 15, 2013
