Paris Mountain Tuesday Night Ride - Intermediate because it is Paris Mountain
Tuesday After Work Group Ride at Paris Mountain. We will meet at the second parking area on the left, located at the first stop sign after entering the park. We plan to roll out at 6:00, but if you are running late, let us know. 6:15 - 6:30 will be the absolute latest we can roll out, due to the gate closing at 9 pm. The route can vary from week to week, based on the group decisions. Preferably, there will be a trip up and over the mountain, down to North Lake, and back up. This is a 2 hour ride, with minimal stops. If we need to do more stops, the route may change to accommodate, or we may split into 2 groups if needed. I am going to list this as Intermediate, due to the time limits and the required climbing involved. Make sure you have properly charged lights as it will be dark before we finish! Helmets are required at all times while on the bike during our group rides. Bike Bells are encouraged! Please be courteous and obey all rules regarding right of way!
