Join us for this early morning 51.5 mile exploratory bike ride starting & finishing at Sosebee Cycling Park!
Our Group Riding Plan
Our plan is to bike ride 51.5 miles from Sosebee Cycling Park at a 2 wheel moderate pedal pace (not too fast, not too slow) and enjoy the beautiful 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.
Our Scenic 51.5 Mile Bike Route
For safety, helmet required to be worn during this event. No helmet, no ride.
Wear light or bright colored clothing and working lights on both front and back of your bike for visibility.
We recommend a road bike although you can ride a hybrid.
Carry your cell phone for emergencies, Uber, GPS mapping, etc.
Parking at Sosebee Cycling Park is limited. Recommend you get to park early to find a parking place.
