Join us for a variation on the ride to Creedmoor. We'll go out via the Mueller subdivision and the east side and return on the near west side. There will be some stop and go urban ... moreriding, but also some flat semi-rural straightaways.

Riders should bring helmet, water and a spare tube. Please leave earbuds and headphones at home.

The average speed overall will be 13-15 mph, but speeds will probably be faster on some intervals. This is a no-drop ride and we will regroup at hills and corners as necessary.

Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for sign-in and route briefing.

Parking is available north of 51st on Duval and on the side streets around the Flight Path. Please don't park in the alley behind the Peddler and the Flight Path.

Coffee and conversation at the Flight Path after the ride.
