Cue Sheet: Lake St. Louis to Foristell Option #1
Print the first page of the above cue sheet. The 40 mile (Around the Lake) ride I plan on doing is on the 1st page.
Experience Level: 4Bc
Stops: Restroom Stop at New Melle Phillips 66 at 9.7 miles. Main Rest/Food stop at the Phillips 66/McDonalds at Hwy M and Veterans Parkway (South outer road).
Road Hazards: Temperatures are still chilly so dress accordingly. Might be the warmest day of the week though. Bring so extra snacks because the main rest stop is at almost 26 miles so plan accordingly. The restroom stop at 9.7 miles breaks it up a bit.
Weather Considerations: The ride will be canceled and rescheduled if: It’s raining at the start location at departing time, if a large weather front is moving in, too cold, roads too wet or too windy. Temperatures are supposed to be rising through the day.
Please watch the weather forecasts and radar. Check the website for any corrections or cancellations before you leave home. Contact ride leader with questions.
