47-mile Cross Triangle Greenway Ride
Details can be found at : http://www.crosstrianglegreenway.org/
Friday, October 25th – Cross Triangle Bike ride at noon
A 47-mile cross triangle ride from Durham to Raleigh on the East Coast Greenway. Thanks to great recent greenway progress, over 90% of the ride will be off-road! Two rest stops will be provided plus a reception at the end. An 18-mile option, starting at Godbold Park in Cary, is also available.
Detailed ride schedule:
10:15am – For those interested, a shuttle will take riders from Raleigh to the Durham start. Pick will be at the Nature Research Center at NC Museum of Science (121 W Jones St, Raleigh, NC 27601)
11am Check-in starts at American Tobacco’s Diamond View Park in downtown Durham
11:30am – Welcome speakers
12:00 – Main ride begins from American Tobacco Campus
First rest area: White Oak Church Rd
Second rest area: Godbold Park, Cary
*Note*: For those not doing the full ride, the other option is to start at the 2nd rest area at Godbold Park. We will check those riders in as well. Riders should arrive at 2:30pm.
Most of the route is paved though some stretches are packed stone dust (so most people can enjoy the ride on wider road or hybrid tires). Don’t expect to average high speeds, as we’ll need to respect walkers, runners, and other greenway users that Friday. This is a group ride (not a race!) and will not be timed.
