Friday Bike Rides??

In addition to our Wednesday bike rides at various locations this Winter, let’s see if we can also do a Friday afternoon ride most Fridays at Lake Beresford Park in Deland. We’ll see how it goes, but here is the first outing.

Casual Bike Ride – Friday, December 15, 2017, 3-5 pm
Join us for an 8-15 mile casual ride at Lake Beresford Park, 2100 Fatio Road, Deland, Florida and heading toward Blue Springs on one of the Spring-to-Spring trail routes. It is a paved, off-road trail. We will first do the 2 mile loop trail to be sure everyone is on board with equipment and conditioning. We run 8-10 miles per hour (D-C Class- no one left behind!) Then we will head for Blue Springs for about 2.8 miles. Expect a few very moderate hills. (Florida ain’t ALL flat.) Then we will cover the new extension for as far as the group wants. A little rest and back to Beresford Park. A total of about 8-15 miles depending on the group. Helmets and water recommended. Adults only. Meet at Roger’s Jeep. There are restrooms and water at Beresford Park. May see a variety of wildlife along the way. Heavy rain or lightning cancels.
Would appreciate a note that you will join us.
Thanks,
Roger
