Who: Everyone is welcome
It's that time of year again to get outside and have fun. Margie has been traveling across the country for nine weeks. She is coming home on May 1st. This hike is to welcome her back and hopefully will be a weekly event for a while.
We will meet at Hogan's fountain at 4:30 for a bike ride of maybe 15 miles.
We will hike the trails around Cherokee at 6. This will be be around an hour and a half hike of slow to moderate walking.
We will then have a pitch in cookout at the teepee shelter house for anyone that wants to join. You can join us for any or all the events.
Road bike: Out of consideration of others please make sure your bike tires are aired up, the bike shifts into all of the gears and your brakes work.
Hike: There will be about 600' of elevation change. We will hike at about a 2.5 mph pace but the hills may make that feel about like 4 mph would on flat ground. There will be shortcuts you can take via the road to get back if you find it too strenuous so there's not much risk in trying it.
Cookout: You might have too much fun. There's a possibility of gaining a little weight unless you hike it off beforehand ;-)
