I have been accused of having some silly reasons to ride my bike a hundred miles, like riding to eat pancakes, to drink a Guinness, to look at water, or to visit a monument. This time I’m getting serious: I’m riding up to Glen Rock to visit Oliver, the donkey.
On November 9th, the Ramble plans to leave from Lake Montebello and travel north to Glen Rock. If we don’t have any big storms between now and then, we might still see some pretty tree color. Ride leaders, ramblers and all-around good people: Andy and Rita Hanson helped me build up this route about a year ago and they’ve generously offered to host us for a short lunch at their farm. Oliver will attend the lunch, but will not be riding with the group. Alas.
The route is hilly, but only 95 miles and we’ll have two short rest stops. Are you coming? We’d love to have you along. PLEASE RSVP so we can gauge how much food will be needed.
Route: Visiting Oliver. 95 mi, 6300 ft. of climbing
Date/Time: Sunday, November 9th. 7:50AM meet up, 8:10AM push off.
