Overall Difficulty:

Moderate-Strenuous

 

Details:

We will meet in the front corner of the Kroger's parking lot nearest the gas station.

 

The ride usually has sections that go through subdivisions, on the shoulder of Harrodsburg Road, on 1 & 2 lane country roads, and on a bike trail. We will be on the shoulder of Harrodsburg Road for part of the ride. This shoulder is as wide as normal lane.

 

It is August so days will start getting shorter. Rain, thunder storms, and severe wind could cancel, watch for ride changes on the website and on Facebook.

 

Make sure you have a helmet, water bottles (with water), spare tubes (that fit your tire and stems that fit your rims, not going to say any names), and a pump or CO2.

 

Arrive early. Pre-ride announcements at 5:50pm. Wheels roll at 6:00pm.

 

Sunset for the month of August is between 8:44pm and 8:08pm. Head lights and blinkies are always recommended.

 

A group usually goes to the SEC Pub or Ramseys for food and drinks after the ride
