Rocky Branch to Cup A Joes Greenway Ride for All Levels!

We will set out from Mission Valley Shopping Center and travel the Rocky Branch Greenway along Western Blvd through the Dorathea Dix campus to Wilmington Street where we will pick up the Walnut Creek Greenway. We will follow this to the Farmers Market, cross Lake Wheeler Rd and pick up the bike path that follows Centennial Pkwy.

The Rocky Branch and Walnut Creek Greenways are  little used   but well maintained. We shouldn't encounter much pedestrian traffic.

When we return to Mission Valley we can load our bikes and head over to Cup O'Joes for post ride refreshments and conversation
Depending on how many folks RSVP we may divide the meetup into a couple or three riding groups. 
The address of the venue is 2109 Avent Ferry Rd.  Park in the vicinity of the liquor store.
Hope to see you there!

    George I will not be able to make the ride today. Injured my knee yesterday riding and didn't think it was too bad at the time, but swollen and sore this a.m. Sorry to miss. Catch all of you on the next one.

    I'm sorry but I overslept for this ride today. I ran 10 miles yesterday and my body just needed rest I guess. Sorry to miss.

      Hey Carla, sounds like you needed the rest. We'll see you next time!

    Is anyone interested in doing an easy ride on the Neuse River Greenway from Clayton or from Mial Plantation Rd? I live in Riverwood and would love to have someone to ride 10+ miles.

      Hi Heather. I live in flowers and would love to have a bike buddy on the greenway. I can't ride this weekend but maybe next?

    If this is posted on mapmyride, what is the name of the route?

    • Wildfire

      Sean, I added you as a friend to get to the route easier and found it. However, I think you have to make that route public.

    I looked at the map and read the discription and put that into Map My Ride. Is this what you mean?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
