Ride Description:

Name:  Union Water Works Loop

Stats:    25.5 miles and 1500 climbing

Speed:   12-13 mph

We will meet this week at Memorial Lake, *Middle Road Entrance, where restrooms are available before and after the ride.  Plan to ride 25 to 26 miles over the typical rolling terrain of Lebanon County.  Speed will be 12 to 13 mph.  There is only one fairly steep hill on Black's Bridge Road, but we have climbed it many times and no one has ever really had any difficulty with it.  This is a rural ride thru farmlands and wooded areas with some nice scenic views.  

The D Plus Ride is leaving from the same time and location for those interested in a little shorter or slightly slower ride.  If you and your spouse or significant other ride at different speeds, you can come to the start together, choose different rides, and meet up afterwards.

I think you will like this ride and hope you can make it!

In the event of rain, I will send a cancellation email to the distribution list no later than 7:30 Saturday morning.  If the weather is questionable, check your emails, call, or text me before you leave home.   

*Note:  For a variety of reasons the Memorial Lake Park personnel request that we use different parking areas on various days.  This week we are meeting at the Middle Road Entrance.
