It looks like we are being given a break from the cold weather, so let's go riding. On Saturday (January 14th), we will hold our January club meeting/ride and have lunch at the Mad Boar Restaurant in Wallace (Google Map link).
Our ride will depart from the Buy & Go Exxon (located at 808 North College Rd, Google Map link) at 10:30 am. If you cannot join the ride, or prefer to ride alone, we should arrive at the Mad Boar around 11:30 am.
The forecast for Saturday, while not as warm as Friday, will still be pretty nice. The forecast is partly cloudy, with temperatures around 50 at departure time and mid-day temperatures in the mid-50s.
I have posted a GPS file (GPX format) for the planned ride route for download (Download Link). The GPS file also includes options for our ride back home. The ride the Mad Boar will be 55 miles. Options for return routes range between 39 miles and 49 miles.
Come ride with us on Saturday. Until then, ride safely and ride far!
It's time for an other club ride and meeting. This Saturday (November 19th) ,we will be heading back to the Duplin Winery Bistro in Rode Hill (GPS coordinates N34.83039 W78.02383) for lunch. We will launch at 10:00 AM from the Buy & Go Exxon located at 808 North College Road in Wilmington (GPS coordinates N34.26022 W77.87006).
