UPDATE - Greenway Boardwalks Closed
Starting at NorthPoint Parkway lot
near the old Ethan Allen Showroom

Start Time: 5:30

This is not a beginner bike ride; we will be averaging over 14 mph with limited stops.

Join us for a 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, clean and very pretty.   We might even see some wildlife.  The Greenway is made up of paved pathways through the woods with some boardwalks mixed in. We plan to do about 24 miles, starting from the Lower Old Alabama Road parking area.  We'll ride to the Union Hill Skate Park (do a lap around the old ice rink) and head back to Marconi to do a couple hill repeats. We'll also throw in a couple of optional hills up to the McKesson building off Marconi. We plan to  regroup only at the Marconi parking lot after the hills, then head back to Roswell. 
The ride is suitable for a hybrid, road bike or mountain bike. Please make sure your bike is ready to go the night before.  We will depart from the parking lot at 5:30 sharp so please arrive 10 minutes early.

Special thanks to Trena and Lauren for the picture and basic information!
