Help newer road riders learn road riding etiquette and safety tips. Help folks who want to get stronger and prepare for more distance. Lessen intimidation and help new riders learn where they are with stamina/endurance. Improve confidence with clipless pedals, learning to drink while riding and steadiness.

Some moderate hills to climb on this route. Come on out!
