Itinerary:

While this is OPEN TO ALL I am putting this out here in preperation for the weekend bikepacking event. I'm hosting this "training ride" for any potential bikepackers - or folks that want to try their had at lugging that gear around in a controled environment. Early sunsets are still upon us, but if you have the holiday off or want to get a good spin in for lunch...join me.
This out and back route will flow from the bottom of the Old Alabama Road trail head and wind around to Marconi Road. It's there where we'll circle and re-group (as we may have drifted in to separate segments). Once we're all accounted for it's go time to the cars at Old Alabama.
This ride is cool on road bikes, gravel/CX bikes, Hybrids or even a MTB if you're up for a serious workout...so, load up them panniers, bring that baby trailer loaded with firewood and let's get this training going - or just join us, we're cool like dat!

Arrive early enough to get set up - aired up and ready to roll right at 11am
