Post event report:
9 MBC riders gathered at the Big Dipper on Higgins and departed for Miller Creek at 11 AM in mostly sunny weather. The initial map showed a distance of 16.6 miles but we discovered as we rode that the pavement continued after a short gravel section for a total ridden route of 25.8 miles. This revised map shows the full route as ridden.
Saturday, March 26, 11:00 AM, ride "To Miller Creek & Back" will begin at the Big Dipper on Higgins Ave. We will then head to the Bitterroot Trail and follow it to Hwy 93 and Miller Creek Rd. We will cross Hwy 93 and ride out Lower Miller Creek Rd. to the end of the paved road following Miller Creek and return. We will return via the South Hills Trail and residential streets. See the map below. If there are riders that wish to ride more miles after the initial Club Ride is completed, we can decide what we will do at that time.
