Big group of twenty riders tonight who were full of energy with two categories on this ride, fast and faster, charging up the hills to and from Silver Lake and enjoying the fast downhill on Saw Mill Rd. The bridge on Lisburn Rd between McCormick Rd and Brenneman Dr will be closed beginning 6/25/18 which will impact our travel later this month in this popular area. The group stayed together well and regrouped after each climb, and traffic was light allowing us to get through intersections quickly. After the climb up Mt Allen Dr, the fastest riders took off, Wayde headed home from there, and many headed back to Fisher Park at 26 miles while a handful of riders turned onto Coventry Dr and took the final planned loop through the developments to Grantham and Williams Grove Rd, getting back to the park right at sunset.
