JOIN US FOR A FRIDAY MORNING BIKE RIDE
Jim and Katrina will lead a bike ride near the Moose Lodge.
Meet at 9:30 am Friday morning, July 3rd at the Moose Lodge, near the Railroader banner, and begin riding at 9:45 am. We'll be on smooth roads near Carvins Cove on lower traffic roads. The route is Carvins Cove area out and back on Rt 311, and you can ride any distance before turning around to return to the Moose Lodge. We are inclined to go out appx.15 miles before heading back. Our typical pace is 12-14 mph. Below is an RWGPS link showing one-way, 15 miles. You can easily add or subtract distance from this 30 mi. total, and you can ride with new or old friends at any pace.
