Ride Description: As of Thursday night, this ride is still on!
Join us this Friday for a relaxed ride through the downtown area and then across the Chatham bridge into Pratt and Brooke Parks and Clearview Heights. This is a brand new route that will cover much of downtown. The elevation is only 746 feet, our flattest route yet, making it perfect for the bound-to-be summer heat.
Please note: Riding downtown can be lots of fun. The speed limit is only 25mph, and cars are used to cyclists. Nevertheless, each cyclist must judge for him or herself whether he/she feels comfortable riding in this or any kind of traffic.
Start location: Old Mill Park, 2201 Caroline St, Fredericksburg, VA
Start time: 9:00am
Parking: Park in the much larger parking lot in the back near the bathrooms.
Group pace: C pace or about 12-14mph. This is a no-drop ride, but please be sure you are able to complete a 22-mile ride in the summer heat.
