RIDE DESCRIPTON: Ride into Hendersonville for a coffee stop at Southern Streams Coffeehouse, then continue back via Davis Mountain Road. We'll average 13-14 mph and regroup often so we can ride together. This is a NO-DROP Ride. Always ensure you have the route and are fully self-sufficient to complete the ride on your own and have the ride leader's cell number.
PARKING CONSIDERATIONS: Park near the road at Etowah Park.
HYDRATION, NOURISHMENT AND AVAILABILITY OF RESTROOMS: Restrooms at Etowah Park. Coffee and snacks at the coffee stop (Southern Streams Coffeehouse).
EQUIPMENT: Helmets and water bottles are mandatory. Have the route on your bike computer, phone, or printed cue sheet. Front facing headlights and rear blinking lights are highly recommended for this ride and required on the Blue Ridge Parkway unless appropriate reflectors are attached. Your bike must be equipped with the necessary lights or reflectors in accordance with applicable North Carolina and federal law and statutes governing bicycles. You should be fully self-sufficient for repair of flat tires or small mechanical issues.
NOTE: All rides leave promptly at the time stated. Give yourself enough time (at least fifteen minutes) to get your bike unloaded and all geared up!
WEATHER: Please remember if the weather looks "iffy" or gets bad before the start date and time, then the ride leaders may not be there and you will be riding on your own. We will try to send out an email if that happens, but Western NC is a very large area and some places could be sunshine and other places bad weather.
