Starting at North Point Parkway Trailhead

Start Time: 5:45

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


Join us for an after work 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 mostly paved pathways through the woods with some boardwalks mixed in. We plan to do about 21 miles, starting from the North Point Parkway parking area.  We'll ride to the end of the Greenway, on Union Hill Road.   We'll  throw in a couple of optional hills on and around Marconi Drive.   We plan to regroup only at the Marconi parking lot before and after the hills. 
The ride is suitable for a hybrid, road bike or gravel bike. Please make sure your bike is ready to go the night before.   We will depart from the parking lot at 5:45 sharp so please arrive 15 minutes early.

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