I plan to go
Planning on catching this ride baring no side tracks!
I’ll be there. Looks like a nice day!
Plan on attending, thanks
The route starts at Cross Roads Store.
I’m seeing two different route options for the 28 miler? Is the ride a lollipop with limited side street parking at Cove Garden or a loop with parking at North Garden store? Just want to plan correctly?!
Thank you Peter for confirming! Hoping I can make it out.

Requirements For Riders
All riders are required to have a helmet; a taillight, 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 roadside. 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.
