This route will also by-pass the road construction on Fairfield, as we ride thru the town of Wauconda. This ride has 979 ft of climb.

      Great! There will be two groups doing this ride. The faster paced group [masked] mph) will obviously pass you first. You can hop on with them or wait a few minutes for the rest of the pack.....13.5-14 mph average.

    I see some familiar faces from the last Advanced pace Lake ride. Can you lead, again, Jonathan?

    June 13, 2014

    • Jonathan P.

      Yeah I should be able to lead again. It should be a good bit of fun. Although Craig will not be joining us. Something about a 3 week trip to Italy... :)
