Itinerary:

ROAD BIKE ONLY RIDE:

Open road ride from Riverside Park along the river down to the dead end, loop back and go through some of the big hills in Martin's Landing. Out to Eves Road then down along Holcomb Bridge Road (HBR, on the path/Swalk). Turning R on to the 2nd Steeple Chase Dr turn we begin tearing up and down the hills along the golf course that gives its name to this loop. We come back UP and out at HBR turning L and it's another quick L at N Atlanta Community Church as we take the path back thru the East Roswell Park to Eves Rd, this time it's a L turn going back down to Riverside Dr. and we'll loop back AGAIN for a second serving of pain & misery!

Don't pay too close attention to that map and elevation...those are just references.
What you'll need to pay attention to is the descents, gearing, half-wheeling and flat out efforts.
This is not a beginners ride, if I don't know you, expect a phone call for vetting purposes.
