Bike to Breakfast @ Rise Bakery @ American Tobacco Trailhead

  • Apr 6, 2013 · 9:00 AM

How best to enjoy the best bike trail in the Triangle?

http://www.wakegov.com/parks/att/Documents/ATT%20Brochure.pdf

By stopping for breakfast mid-ride at the best new bakery in the Triangle: Rise!

http://www.risebiscuitsdonuts.com

The American Tobacco Trail is a flat rail-trail paved with rock dust or asphalt. Mountain bikes, hybrids or road bikes(fat tires) are recommended. There are no motorized vehicles on the trail with only 9 road crossings for this 14 mile stretch – so a great way to peddle many miles safely!

Here is the plan:

- Meet and start riding at 9am from the southern terminus of the Tobacco Trail at the New Hill-Olive Chapel Road parking area (1309 New Hill-Olive Chapel Road, Apex, NC 27502), GPS = [masked],[masked]

- Peddle 14 miles @10-12mph pace to the Renaissance Parkway to Rise Bakery.

- Breakfast at Rise for about an hour, then

- Peddle 14 miles @10-12mph pace back to New Hill parking area.

- Total trip duration: ~4 hours.
REQUIRED:

- Helmets & 1 liter of Water (no water available on the trail)

- Ability to ride 28 miles total @10-12mph pace on ~flat trail

- Clear weather forecast: <30% chance of rain. Look for update the evening before the ride.

Come join the fun!

    Great fun, good food, and new friends! Next time I'll have to allow closer to four hours to bike, eat, visit, and return.

    I'm planning on it, but I need to fix a slow leak tire first. Will update if I have a problem.
