Come and ride The Path through the nature preserve, over the covered bridge to Lake Alexander and onto the South Rockdale River Trail spur. Shady trail with lots of wildlife. Bring water and snacks there are no store stops on the trail. About 30 miles with (lots of) moderate hills at a 11-13 mph avg. New starting point beginning with the Feb. 2014 ride is the parking lot (please park toward the back of the lot) of the Stonecrest Library, 3123 Klondike Rd, Lithonia, GA 30038.
This ride will be cancelled if its raining or conditions are particularly wet. Please check this board regularly or contact me if you are uncertain. It is a good idea to carry the following on this ride: 1) Phone; 2) water; 3) a snack bar; 4) a spare tube; 5) something to inflate the tube with. (Many of us have spare tubes & CO2 cartridges, so if you don't, you are still covered.)
WEAR A HELMET. There are no exceptions from this requirement.
Water & bathrooms are available at the 11 & 15 mile points.
My phone number is: 404.254.3617--put it into your cell phone. It might be handy if you have trouble finding the starting point or if you have difficulty on the ride and we are spread out. Or the weather creates doubt about the viability of the ride.
