|Modified the '07 header for this year.|
When: July 30th, 2016
The Starting Place: We are mustering at Prairie Grove Park, known amongst locals as the old "Dinosaur Park", and the parking lot there off West 4th Street at Shaulis Road is where you can leave your vehicle. Or, it is an easy ride from George Wyth State Park if you'd rather camp. There are bike trails all the way to Prairie Grove Park from the State Park, so you could ride over if you wanted.
Lodging: As stated, there is the State Park, or you can motel it choosing any of the several motels in Waterloo/Cedar Falls. Most are near to our network of bike trails, so again- you can ride out if you'd like.
Schedule Of Events: Friday Night: Anyone coming from out of town should plan on getting here by Friday night. If anyone has a mind to get together, I can be available and we could pick a place to have a beer or whatever.
|I'll be riding the Gen I Fargo for this ride.|
Folks will likely want to bug out after such a long day, but I might be persuaded to sit around and have a cold one somewhere, who knows. The route will likely be about 140 miles, but as I have said, a lot of this is pretty tame, in terms of hills, so unless the weather is brutal, we should be okay. By the way, there are a lot of ways to shortcut the route up until about Mile 65, where you'll have to make a decision to commit since the route takes a big swing West and further away at that point.
There will be another update coming soon and I will post cues for this ride previous to the event so you can download them and print them off. Old school. Just like we did in '06. I have heard from a couple of guys saying they want to make the trip out to ride this, but if you want to declare your intentions, that would be great. Maybe if you have questions, you need answers, and I may have them. Either way, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More coming soon........
