DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
Riders can do 28.1 or 23.5 miles. We will pedal from Lums Pond to Delaware City and back with some of the route on the Mike Castle Trail and lots of bike lanes. It is somewhat flat ride with one noticeable hill using just enough effort to become hungry for picnic food. We will get back in time to cool down and rest and change clothes before the big ta-do. Cue sheets will be provided.
