Let's ride a portion from Banks to Buxton. It's slightly (to me), uphill, so bring your gears, and remember its downhill all the way home.
Paved nicely, and we'll stop at the picnic tables in Buxton. Bring a huge heart, because its needed and schedule a massage for afterwards, cause that will be needed as well.
We will hit the Cornelius RoadHouse (McMin's) afterwards for a much needed bite and adult beverage.....The Ride is 7 miles from Banks to Buxton, elevation gain is definitely uphill......Where eagles fly......
