Hey, it looks like we will have an opportunity to get our bikes out.  The weather looks nice for Sunday, high of 65 and sunshine.  It will be cool at the start, probably in the low 50's, so dress appropriately.

We will meet at the entrance to the Noonday Creek Trail located at 3001 Bells Ferry Road. Plan to arrive no later than 09:45 to make introductions and prepare hit the trail by 10:00 AM. **** I have to limit this at 10 total so we can get seating for a group lunch ****

Our 10 mile ride to the Marietta square begins on a nice paved trail. As we proceed we will make our way towards Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. After we pass Kennesaw Mountain, we will continue on the trail riding along Kennesaw Avenue, at around mile 9 we will have to ride on the road and into the square. Upon arriving in the square we'll have an optional lunch at Taco Tsumani, tell stories and get to know each other a little better. After lunch, we'll head back the same way we came for a total of a 20 mile workout.

The pace will be moderate and there are a few hills to negotiate but overall this is a doable ride. Please remember to bring a helmet, bike lock and tire repair items in case of a flat. 


NOTE: For safety, helmet required to be worn during this event.  No helmet, no bike ride.
