UPDATE - Greenway Boardwalks Closed
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.
Special thanks to Trena and Lauren for the picture and basic information!

Driving northbound on North Point Parkway halfway between Mansell and Haynes Bridge Roads, find the greenway sign directly across from Haverty's Furniture.
While this is not a beginners ride, this ride can be done at your own pace, just note there is not sweep, I will loop back occasionally to keep an eye on things. We will regroup after the climbs on Marconi too.
