MBC-UMRA Tuesday Ride 7/9/2024 - Report w/Map

Post ride report:

10 riders met at Silver Park to enjoy this warm morning ride. Departing Silver Park on the west bound Milwaukee Trail with the temperature in the mid 70's we proceeded to the Fort Missoula Regional Park for a short break in the shade of the shelter. We then proceeded to the South Hills Trail system. Our leader missed the correct turning following Arrowhead Dr. and we had to backtrack to Lux on the north side of 39th Street. The only minor issue during this Tuesday ride. Everyone enjoyed the ride and the opportunity to meet new riders with this Tuesday riding group.
