For Saturdays 0730 YMCA ride, I plan on using the following route to ride to Hopewell. I will join the 0900 Hopewell ride with Clay to do the 40-mile loop and return to the YMCA at the end. This will end up being about 70-miles all told (20-miles to Hopewell, 40-miles with Clay and 10-miles back to the YMCA). I anticipate a 18- to 19-mph pace to Hopewell and a 19- to 20-mph pace for the 40-mile loop. The return pace will be based on how much legs are left.

The return route will be via Macedonia Mountain and the standard YMCA route marked with double white arrows.
