RIDE DESCRIPTON: Ride through apple orchards to Flat Rock. Then return by a big western loop past Carl Sandberg's estate and over Jones Gap/Indian Cove (Cave). I won't be stopping at the bakery - just a nice Sunday afternoon ride.
C Pace (14 mph avg), 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 Flied 2/Glover Rd at Jackson Park.
HYDRATION, NOURISHMENT AND AVAILABILITY OF RESTROOMS: Restrooms at Jackson Park.
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.
