On Again/Off Again: Sunday, January 10th
I’m not particularly sentimental about year changes, but I really appreciate passing the solstice and the increase in sunlight. So, I’m excited to get out and explore on bike.
Here’s the deal: I’ve got the On Again/Off Again short version scheduled for us. The ride alternates between short stretches of the NCR/Heritage rail trails and the hilly roads on both sides of the trail. I don’t normally consider this a winter route since the trail’s often un-rideable from snow and ice. But with the mild weather this season, I expect we’ll have fun with it. We should warm up on the steep climbs and enjoy the protection of the trail. Lunch is in New Freedom at Seven Bar and Grill. Start is at Meadowood Park.
On Again/Off Again: 86 mi., 4800ft.
Date/Time: Sunday January 10th 7:50AM meet-up. 8:05 exit
Start: Meadowood Regional Park STARTMAP
