March 16 (Thursday) Downtown Happy Hour Ride
Pace Time Miles Terrain Stops Leader
A/B+ 6 pm 20 2 (some steep) None Michael Todd, 908.419.7322 , mtodd@richmond.edu -

Description and Directions: Start Location: 600 East Main Street (Main Street Center Courtyard). Starting downtown, we'll cross the river on Belvedere/US 301 and head west on Riverside Drive, we'll continue on Riverside after a brief connection point over the Powhite via Forest Hill, we'll cross back over the river via the Huguenot Bridge, take a short excursion through UofR campus before connecting with Grove Avenue, which we'll take all the way back downtown.

What to Expect: This ride is meant to be a quick workout after a day in the office. It is an urban route with traffic expected, we'll stay on an easier pace on the heavily trafficked roads to maximize safety and hopefully push ourselves a bit on the stretches of Riverside, UofR's campus and Grove, which are all bike friendly routes. With total mileage of just under 20 miles, it shouldn't take any more than 1.5 hours. (bring a light).

March 18 (Saturday)- 8:15 a.m. Adopt a Highway Trash Pick Up and Ride

Information: Bud Vye, 262-9544, bdvye@comcast.net

Description: This will be the first trash pickup of the year, so all hands are needed if we are to continue our recent practice of knocking out this task in about an hour and 20 minutes. After the job is completed, the club will treat the pickers to a muffin and coffee, following which the pickers who wish to do so may ride. As always, bring your gloves and wear long trousers over your riding outfit.
