Hot Dog Ride

We will cycle the "Hot Dog Ride" which starts from the Black Creek Greenway parking lot across Maynard Road from Godbold Park in Cary and ends at Faircloth/Gorman and Hillsborough Streets in Raleigh where we'll stop for lunch at Snoopy's Hot Dogs . We will then retrace our route back to Godbold Park.

 

The greenway and bike trails we will be riding are the following: Cary's Black Creek Greenway, Umstead State Park's Reedy Creek Trail, and Raleigh's Reedy Creek Greenway. The bike route consists of paved greenways, gravel roads, and packed crushed stone roads.  Note there are some  hills on the way back so you need to be in moderate shape for this ride, But don't worry, we will always wait if anyone wants to walk up. This is not a race, just a pleasant ride.

The round trip distance of the ride is about 28 miles. Meet at the Black Creek greenway access parking lot across the street from Godbold Park located on Cary's NW Maynard Rd. Cycling helmets are recommended for this ride. Reference the Hot Dog Ride Map to view the bike route.

    Best day of the year so far, 87F on the way back. Saw a 4 ft black snake that looked like it had just woken up. This ride is always good, lots of changing scenery with some challenging hills on the return leg.
