Time of Departure:  7:00am-like this ride so much, riding it twice in April

Description: Hills and rollers-scenic terrain. 1st loop2675 feet of climbing – 54 miles, approximately 4 hours. 2nd Loop2233 feet of climbing – 47 miles.  Options, you can ride the century or come for the first loop  or second loop.   Weather projection: – 50 degrees at 7:00am, up to 70 degrees.  Please bring your lunch and drink{s}, can store in Sue’s fridge if needed.  So if you want to ride just the first half, you can stay, chat, eat and wave bye to the century riders.

Please let Sue or Kathy know if you plan on riding the century.  Also if you want to ride the 2nd half of the ride, please contact one of us.  We can coordinate arrival times back at Sue’s home.  Questions give one of us a call.

Special Considerations during this time:

Good idea to bring lip balm, lights for bikes (if wanted), plenty of water and snacks.  Don’t forget your sunscreen and print off a cue sheet for route (if wanted).   Lunch at Sue’s – bring your goodies.

West Hwy 64, left (southwest) on Hwy 94, Approximately 1 mile to Hwy D, right turn (west), 14 miles to Sue’s home, around a bend on the road (right side) Due to school in session, Hwy 94 traffic from Hwy 64, could take an extra 10 minutes or so.  Another option, continue on Hwy 64 to Hwy Z, head south (left) for approximately 6 miles to Hwy D, then right to Sue’s home.

Plenty of parking available. Good idea, to map on phone, hence easier to turn into Sue’s driveway-white 2 story home. Town of New Melle – 4 miles from Sue’s home has a service station, bathrooms available.  Bathroom available at Sue’s home.
