Post event report:
12 riders gathered at Silver Park at 1:30 PM for a cool afternoon ride around our Fort Loop with extension out to Kelly Island fishing access. In addition to our fairly regular Tuesday afternoon riders we were joined by a new MBC member. While the weather was cool it was quite appropriate for this casual afternoon ride that was enjoyed by all.
Statistics: Distance: 13 mi, Elevation gain: 136 ft.
Given the current long range weather forecast, Tuesday, 9/19, that looks to be beginning of late summer weather with a high of 68, this should be a good day to begin our afternoon rides. With that indication of probable temperature we will gather for a ride at 1:30 PM at Silver Park. Any cancellation/postponement will be posted here and a cancellation email will be sent out not later than 11:00 AM the day of the ride, Tuesday 9/19, to all who have RSVP'd.
We will select a route as we gather at Silver Park. We will try to leave our assembly point as soon after 1:30 PM as possible. This will be a slow to moderate paced ride (9 to 12 mph on the flats). No one will be left behind.
While this ride is targeted towards UM Retirees, it is open to all MBC members. Please remember that this will be a slow to moderate pace and potential of moderate hills to climb and descend. Please RSVP if you’re considering joining the ride so that you will be provided the leader's contact information and can be informed of any late-breaking changes (e.g., weather or smoke related cancellation).
