Pace Time Miles Terrain Stops Leader
B 10 am 31 3/4 one Rich Thompson , 757-291-2548,
C 10 am 31 3/4 one Jack Huber,

Description: Rich Thompson & Jack Huber invite you to join them for the popular West Point Area ride. Those that have ridden this route previously can vouch that the route offers a variety of scenic country back roads, with low vehicle traffic, and a rolling terrain which makes this ride such a treat. Another highlight of this ride is that the rest stop is at a turn of the century general store before the last 10 miles of the ride. Yes, it is like stepping back in Time. The owner of the General Store does not take credit cards so remember to bring cash.

After the ride, Rich & Jack invite you to join them for lunch at one of West Point's local eateries. So please bring some extra cash or your credit card.

To reserve your spot on this popular ride, please contact Rich or Jack No Later Than 7 PM on Friday, November 6.

November 19 (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 , -

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).
