Fri December 13, 2013 - Friday Frolic w/LindaCOLD WEATHER UPDATE: BIKE RIDE OR HIKE, DEPENDING ON THE GROUP.
Level C+, 13-14 mph, 30-35 miles. Meet at Norristown Farm Park, parking lot on Whitehall Rd, half-way between Germantown Pike and Sterigere St. This parking lot is across the street from Norristown Area High School at Whitehall and Eagle Drive. The ride leaves at 12:30 pm. 12/13: Leader has to work on Friday morning 12/13, due to Tuesday's snow day. Leader will be at Norristown Farm Park at 12:30pm. Depending on who joins us and what the group would like to do, we will either take a bike ride (mostly flat) on trails (the Farm Park and Schuylkill River Trail toward Valley Forge & Phoenixville), or else, we will take a walk on the trails. We will make a game-time decision to cycle vs. walk, based on the road/trail conditions. Indoor rest stop at the mid-way point.
Leader: Linda McGrane, [masked], [masked]
PLEASE NOTE: As temperatures get colder this winter, this ride may be scheduled a bit later in the day. This is a weekly, recurring ride. Enjoy scenic adventures by bike on most Fridays, throughout the year. We'll explore pretty, peaceful roads in suburban counties -- Montgomery, Bucks, Chester, etc. Starting points will vary, so that we can cycle through different regions. Depending on the destination, starting point may be in Conshohocken, Flourtown, Jenkintown, Wayne, Valley Forge, etc. Please check the daily calendar for details of each Friday's route -- terrain, mileage, rest stops, etc. Cue sheets and on-line route map will be provided for each ride. Scheduled for virtually every Friday throughout the year, with a few exceptions here & there. If weather conditions are not conducive to cycling, this ride may be replaced by a hike/walk (on foot), or snow trek. As long as we are enjoying outdoor physical exercise, and Mother Nature, in the company of friends, we'll have a memorable outing. Cue sheets will be available. For all of LMc's rides, optional on-line preregistration will be set-up on BCP's web calendar -- pre-registration will be open until 11:59pm the night before the ride. We hope that you'll join us on some or many of these Friday Frolics!
