    Here are the routes for this Saturday's ride, June11th. Roll-out is promptly at 8AM from the Pineville Club (120 Flowers Pkwy, Clayton, NC.) The club should be open and available for restrooms before the ride and as always we have access to the club for a shower and change of clothes after the ride.

    THIS WEEK IS SPECIAL: our own John Powell will be departing from the club at 8am for a nearly 1,300 mile self-supported bicycle tour to his 50th High School Reunion in Cadillac, Michigan!! He's using the tour to raise money for the National MS Society, so please consider supporting him with a donation.

    The routes are 27 miles, 36 miles, and 53 miles. These are similar distances to last week, but there are some hills on Antioch Church Rd. which should make for a more challenging ride than last week's relatively flat route. All three routes share a SAG stop at Flower Hill Grocery, which is not yet open for business so NO RESTROOMS! The 36 & 53 mile routes get to climb Flower Hill for the first time this year, so the SAG stop should be a welcome sight.

    The 53 mile route passes Buckhorn Lake at mile 29, there are restrooms and sodas/water for sale at the attendant's window. Looks like the closest restrooms for the 26 & 36 mile routes would be off-course at Brewer's Grill on Hwy 42 near the intersection with Hwy 222 or possibly at the Antioch Fire Station on Hwy 39 just north of the intersection with Antioch Church Rd. (Just up Hwy 39 from the church)

    All routes will start at 8AM, but it's important that you know which route you plan to ride because we'll send the 53 milers out first, then the 36 milers, and then the 26 milers.

    This week our volunteer SAG driver is Ford Hibbits (THANKS!)

    Cue sheets will be handed out at the start of the ride. Bring some cash just in case, and if you don't end up using it on the road come join us for the pizza buffet at Cici's after!
