This is not a casual ride. We will be moving at a moderate to fast pace, and average over 15 mph, including stops. 

Join us for a wintery training ride on the Big Creek Greenway. For those of you who have not been on the Big Creek Greenway, it is great!  It is very well maintained, clean and very pretty.  We might even see some wildlife. The Greenway is made up of mostly paved pathways through the woods with some boardwalks mixed in. We plan to do about 20 miles, starting from the Old Alabama Road parking area. We'll ride to the end of the Greenway, on Marconi Drive. This is were it gets intersting. We'll get on Marconi Drive and do a couple of hill then return to the trail head. With the little bit later start - evening traffic should be lighter.
The ride is suitable for a CX, hybrid, road bike or mountain bike...just be sure it's mechanically sound.
Even though the sunset is getting later and later -  bring a light to ensure safety toward the end of the ride.

Wheels down right at 4:30 p.m. in the parking lot, so please arrive 10-15 minutes early, I won't make us suffer too long during the pre-ride brief and intros :P
