Road Ride – Medium Length to South Twin Lake – 3rd try!
August 31 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Here’s hoping 3rd time’s a charm. The one positive is we might have better non-smoke conditions next week, at least we’ll hope. So far this week it has been awful.
This is a paved ride up South Century to South Twin Lake where we will stop and take a break while enjoying the view of the lake. There is a store and cafe available if needed. We will then return the way we came.
Traffic is usually light at this time of day, but it IS summer and the vacationers are out . . .
We will meet at the parking area at MP 14 on South Century Drive. Take a left into the parking lot just past the MP 14 marker. There is no restroom available here but there is a restroom at the lake.
Ride Level: Advanced Beginner
Length of Ride: 25 miles with an elevation gain of 800 ft
Terrain: Fully paved on a usually light traffic road, however, when we turn off South Century to the lake the road is rougher (but paved).
Pace: Comfortable 10-13 mph average and we will regroup periodically as needed.
For Safety: Front/back bike lights; rear view mirror; flat tire repair kit. E-bikes are OK on this ride.
**Bella rides are “no drop” rides and no one will be left behind. If you choose to leave the group, you MUST let the leader know. You will then be on your own.
It helps to download this and see where the elevation gain is located.
