Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.

        ~ Albert Einstein

So let's keep moving, on our bikes!

We'll ride the Forsyth Big Creek Greenway for 6.8 miles each way with a twist, we'll segway thru a developing tract to add some additional mileage and get closer to 15 miles for the am.

We'll meet at the Forsyth Big Creek Greenway on Bethelview/141. We'll ride from the trailhead to McFarland, keeping a moderate pace of 10-12 mph. Along the way we'll ride through Shiloh Woods, a developing subdivision, for an extra 1-1.5 miles, return to the Greenway and continue to McFarland. The return trip will be straight thru to the trailhead.
