Walnut Creek/Morning Times ride and hang out

If you attended the Rocky Branch Cup a Joe ride a few weeks back this ride picks up where we began the return trip to Cup a Joes.  This time, we will take Walnut Creek Greenway East to the end of the Trail.  This is an out and back ride and is fairly flat and easy.  There is one long tunnel and a couple of short ones.  There are no lights in the tunnel so you may want to walk your bikes through that portion.

When we return to the cars we can load our bikes and make the short drive Downtown to The Morning Times for Coffee and food.  Morning Times is part of Raleigh Times Restaurant at 10 East Hargett Street.  There should be plenty of parking on the street around the restaurant and there is a free parking garage 1/2 block away on Wilmington st.

If you're unfamiliar with the area feel free to call or text for more details. [masked]-0963.  Or message me through this meetup.  

See you on the 19th!

Above is the ride route.  approximately 7 miles round trip.

    Thanks for a fun ride today! Brett and I said we'd report back on the section of the trail beyond the point where the group turned around. The trail goes for about another mile. It is mainly gravel with some of the gravel being a bit rough. I don't think it would have been well suited for road bikes. Most of that stretch was rolling hills, which gave a decent workout. It ended with an underpass under New Hope Road. At that point the gravel gave way to mud so we turned around.

    I posted a map of the ride for Saturday the 19th. It turns out it is a pretty short ride. I may attempt to figure a way to add 2 or 3 miles to it.
