Itinerary:

 THIS IS A RIDE AT YOUR OWN PACE RIDE.
(you can ride as FAST as you'd like or as casual as you'd like, but there is no sweep)

Join us for a SPRING 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 (due to some recent rains it may be muddy), 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 at your own pace, be comfortable knowing the trail and be prepared for the unexpected. We'll be 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 repeats..re-group at the top of Marconi's Trailhead then return to the Roswell Greenway Trailhead. 
 
The ride is suitable for a CX, hybrid, road bike or mountain bike...just be sure it's mechanically sound.
Bring a light to ensure safety toward the end of the ride. Flashing headlight and taillights are good fro daylight saftey too.

Wheels down right at 5:30 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
