Batesville – Taylor Creek – Ennis Mtn (40, B & C, H)

June 25 @ 8:00 am

From the Crossroads Store, this moderately hilly ride heads northwest to Batesville then southwest on Craigs Store Road. The next stretch is an out-and-back along Taylor Creek for 5 miles to the scenic town of Heards. The route retraces its steps back to Ennis Mountain Road for a moderate, shady climb over Ennis Mountain to Batesville Road, then back to Batesville and the Crossroads Store.

Saturday rides will now include a C group ride.  We encourage our C riders to come out and join us.

    I will also try to intercept the outbound group at the Batesville market. C+B- – pace

  • Kyoko


    I plan to be there! Hoping to keep up with the B group. Instead of the out and back, I plan to climb up and down spring valley rd gravel and (hopefully) intercept the group again.

    Baby Emily will come to pick me up if anyone wants to join us for lunch at Dr Hos’s! Excited to see and ride with everyone.

  • Jeff Deacon


    I plan to intercept this ride at the Batesville Market on the outbound leg. See you in the morning.

  • Bob Mical

  • Bill Lowe


    Weather’s looking good. I plan to be there riding a B pace.

NOTE: As of 01/01/2022, we have become a member-supported club.  We encourage all of our cycling friends to join us.  For new riders, our club insurance covers non-members of the club for their first ride only.  Thanks.

We are planning additional rides each week, so stay tuned!  If you are interested in helping to organize a group ride for the Club, please contact us!

For details on how group rides are categorized, check out the Ride Classification guidelines.

Requirements For Riders

All riders are required to have a helmet; a tail light, Road ID and a rear-view mirror is strongly recommended.  You are also expected to have adequate fluids and a road-worthy bicycle in good repair.  Many rides, but not all, will include the opportunity to stop at a store to replenish supplies.

You should be prepared to fix a flat tire and perform other minor repairs on the road side.  If you are new to cycling and are not comfortable with these procedures, don’t let that stop you.  However, you might want to talk to a more experienced member before the ride so the group is prepared to help if necessary.

Safety On The Road

The club considers safety to be our very highest priority.  Please review the information on the Safety Page before you join us for a ride.

We hope that you will find this site helpful; your questions and comments are welcomed.

Here is the regional map of Starting Points page.
