********UPDATED TIME TO START RIDE************
Looks like we might be in better shape to head out at 2:00. I've heard from a couple of people in Knightdale and it still seems to be coming down pretty good there.
Hope everyone had a nice Christmas. This is the last weekend ride of 2013. Previously we rode the Neuse River Greenway to Anderson Point and it was decided we needed to take it to Clayton. So, let's do it.
I have not personally experienced this portion of the greenway as of yet, but we do have a couple of people that will join us that have riden this previously.
The route is starting at the Anderson Point Park Parking lot. Address to use for mapping is 20 Anderson Point Dr. Raleigh. As you come across the bridge over Hwy 264 entering the park, turn left into the parking lot.(NOTE- there is a parking lot on the left before the bridge as well) Plan on meeting at 9:45 a.m. and heading out at 10:00 a.m. For reference - From Anderson Pt Park to the end of the Greenway in Clayton and back is a total of 31 miles. It is my understanding this route has a few decent climbs, which could be compared to the climb behind the museum as you come up to Meredith College, which this meet up has done before...Given the mileage and climbs this is NOT A BEGINNER ride.
Also, it's always a good idea to bring essentials for a flat should that occur as we are going to be riding 31-35 miles.
See you soon,
