The Tour de Cure Training Ride series continues with an event ride hosted by the Salem Bicycle Club. The Monster Cookie is their signature event, and is the traditional start of the regional bicycle season. The ride is a 60 mile "metric century". However, riders can turn back at the first/third rest stop and complete "half a Cookie". This is a road ride, almost entirely flat.
The Salem bicycle club runs this event, and we are their guests, supporting our common cause of health through cycling. Riders are responsible for their own registration to this event. Use this meetup page to coordinate with ride partners.
Half-Cookie (30mi) riders - If you'd like familiar company, TDC Training riders can coordinate a group sendoff on this meetup. Suggest gathering at the Capitol Steps (Court St, across from the registration tables) about 8am (full 60-milers) and 9am (30-milers). Start may be delayed, depending on how crowded the registration lines are.
More information, including maps and online registration ($20 before April 19th), is on the Salem Bicycle club website: http://www.salembicycleclub.org/content.plx?page=majrides )
