  • Saxapahaw!

    Aqua-tots

    We'll be riding to Saxapahaw this Saturday (Nov 9) at a steady-effort (easing on the climbs) pace of 18 mph. Starting near Green Level West & NC 55 at 11:00 a.m. using the following route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27240072 80 miles w/ 3,400 ft. elevation gain Although this is technically a drop ride, we will endeavor to keep the group together as long as folks can maintain the average pace, and sitting in/skipping pulls is fine. We will regroup after Lystra and Mt. Olive Church climbs in particular. One relatively brief rest stop in Saxapahaw, but optional quick bathroom breaks at Frosty's (mile 24.5) and/or Breakaway Cafe (mile 62.8) if needed. --------------------------- A signed liability waiver is required each year for every participant.
