||Chesterfield County Ride
Description: Join us for this ride on some
smooth, scenic, and generally little traveled back roads in Chesterfield County. As of now we have a B+ pace ride leader. There is also nearly always a group of faster (A/A+) riders to join if you are so inclined, but currently no designated A pace leader. We are looking for volunteers to lead faster or slower paces (please contact us if interested!). Maps will be available to those wishing to ride at their own pace. Shorter options are available. We generally do not ride if there is a high probability of rain so check your email or look out the window if the weather is questionable.
Directions: The ride leaves from the Bethia Methodist Church at the
corner of Winterpock and Beach. Take Hull Street 2.2 miles west of 288. Turn left at

before the Stop sign at Beach. Please park in the front parking lot away from the
church. Be sure to allow time for traffic on Hull Street on your way to the ride.
