Double back rides give cyclists flexibility on rides. Cyclists begin at the midpoint and cycle to the first destination. The group turns and cycles back to the start. Cyclists wanting a short ride end their ride. Cyclists up for a longer ride continue to the second destination and back to the midpoint. There you have it; a double back with two rides options!
Tonight’s ride travels at 10 mph and typically takes 2 hours including photo-ops and rest stops. The ride is rated for leisure cyclists who enjoy cycling 10-12 mph on flat trails with an occasional hill or elevation gain. The trail surface is mixed with areas of both asphalt and packed limestone. It is relatively flat with some moderate elevation changes. The ride should be a comfortable ride for the intermediate cyclist. It is ideal for a beginner cyclist who wants a small challenge.
