Please check the map carefully by clicking the Lake Erie College link above. Note that the parking lot where we will meet is NOT at LEC's main entrance. It is at Garfield Center, off Gillett St. in back of the college.*
We're going to take a leisurely ride out and back along Lake Metroparks' beautiful and shady Greenway Corridor. We'll start out by 6:30.
The ride will be less than 12 miles total and taken mostly on the paved bike trail, with some street crossings and a couple of short sections along roads or sidewalks. The terrain is primarily flat, with a few gentle hills.
The pace will be moderate--about 10 - 14 mph.--and the second half of the ride will have a downhill incline.
As an added bonus, we can stop and take a look at Chair Factory Falls. It is accessible by taking a short (but steep!) .3 mile trail at about the half-way point of this ride. (We'll park our bikes and walk.)
*To get to the Garfield Center parking lot, take W. Washington Street off Rt. 20/Mentor Ave., turn right on Gillett. The parking lot is on the right.
Following the ride and loading up our bikes, we riders might stop over at Rider's Inn Pub on Mentor Avenue for a bite to eat. (FYI, their kitchen closes at 9:00!)
