This Sunday, July 12th, please join us for a rambling hilly ride starting in Carefree, Indiana.
The ride starts at the Pilot truck stop at exit 92 on I-64 at 10:00 a.m. We know not everyone has a good way to haul a bike out there, but Tim and I both have trucks and will be picking people up at Mid-City Mall at 9:00 a.m. You must let us know you need a ride, as we can only haul a few bikes.
This ride is roughly 60 miles, and quite hilly, and should be a good time. There is the possibility of gravel roads, and dirt paths, so plan accordingly.
This was initially going to be called a “mixed-terrain” ride, but neither Tim or I have had the time to verify the course completely. It is possible, but unlikely, that we will remain on pavement.
Remember, the point of an RCCS ride is to stay together and go at a reasonable pace. I will bring maps and cue sheets, but if we stay together they’ll be less necessary.
Please be prepared. Be able to fix a flat. Bring plenty of water and snacks. There may or may not be store stops along the way.
See you there!
I’ve uploaded cue sheet and maps. I will be bringing printed copies, but if you want to print the maps in color, you’ll need your own printer.
The route is now about 68 miles, I changed it a bit to avoid some highway riding.
My fiancé will be driving my truck along the route carrying extra snacks. She could also provide rides back to the start position for those that need to “bail”.
The ‘Carefree’ exit is exit 92 off I-64. It’s about a 45-mile drive from mid-Louisville. There is a large Pilot station at the exit and you should park somewhere around there, not bothering their business. There is also single lane traffic construction for a while too. As previously stated, come prepared with water, food, and mechanicals. This ride will be in the serious boonies for much of the duration. Should be an adventure, though!!!
