Join us for this early morning 41.4 mile exploratory bike ride starting at Sosebee Cycling Park to Lovebridge & back.




Our Group Riding Plan       

Our plan is to bike ride 41.4 miles from Sosebee Cylcling Park to Lovebridge & back at a 2 wheel moderate pedal pace (not too fast, not too slow) and enjoy the rolling hills and amazing countryside scenery. 

There are hills, some more challenging, please note: this is NOT a flat greenway or Silver Comet ride, or speed race to see who can finish first.  We will plan to stay together as a group, stopping every few miles to re-group & re-energize with a few gulps of water or Gatorade and snacks. 

Up front notice: This is a no-drop ride so no one will be left behind, but if you can't keep up with the group, you may be asked to turn around - you're responsible for finding your way back to the start.  Road bike strongly recommended, unless you can keep up with the other cyclists on a hybrid bike.
