The Sunday Morning Elm Creek Ride

Spend your Sunday morning cruising Elm Creek Park or from there!

This is a two-part ride. The main ride starts at 10:00 we will ride the long loop around Elm Creek, or To the Coon Rapids dam or, maybe the Medicine lake trail. It will be (approx. 15 mph average) and could be from 14 miles up to around 20 miles. The main ride starts at 10:00 and will keep things nice and casual. Average, or "flat", speeds will be around 14-16 MPH.

The second part of this ride is a "pre-ride" warm-up/work-out loop for those interested in riding a lot harder, faster, and/or longer. We'll meet at 9:00, do a faster paced "sprint" around Elm Creek  for those that want to go a tad faster and get the blood flowing (17-20 MPH average?) with perhaps only one stop, and then meet the others back in the parking lot for the regular 10:00 ride. (Note: Because we need to get back by 10:00, we must be on the trail no later than 9:00 for this ride, and need to do this loop quickly. Please don't feel bad if you show-up at 9:01 and we are gone.....

Ride one, ride both...it's all good!

I will not do a group ride in the rain. If it is raining, please consider the ride(s) to be canceled.

Lastly, all are welcome, as the 10:00 AM ride is a "no drop" ride. Those that would prefer to ride ahead at a faster pace, please feel free. We won't hold it against you- we'll just get to the Maple Tavern a little bit later!

New members: Please look for my Red Jeep at the North End of the chalet parking lot.

As always, please bring your safety gear, appropriate clothing, and a positive attitude!

See you at the park!

    We'll start earlier than 9 - thinking of riding through Elm Creek and over to the CR Dam. We'll probably cross paths mid morning so we'll keep an eye out :)

    Sounds like a good opportunity to wear the new "colors" and "represent" afterward at Maple Tavern, to me...
