This hilly “TriState Parks Ride” is 27 miles with about 1600 ft of climb. It features many roads with little traffic and lots of shade and one rest stop at a Fair Hill parking lot with a port-a-potty. It includes a 0.4 mile unpaved flat trail that we will plan on walking, so a road bike is fine. Bring plenty to drink and a snack. Leader: Carol Ireland, 302-598-9769, .
*RSVP’s will only be taken NO MORE THAN 6 days prior to the event. If a conflict arises to prevent you from riding after you have RSVP’d, contact Carol to cancel so another rider can attend.
