For whatever reason, 2011 has been a slow year for COBRA group rides. I for one have been enjoying quite a bit of my own riding this year (closing in on 4,000 miles already myself) but for some reason we just haven’t been able to get a group ride going. Hopefully, this one will bring more of us out!
We have a fun twisty tour mapped out and scheduled for Sunday, August 7. Kickstands up at 10:00am sharp, so show up early with a full tank of gas so you’re geared up and ready to roll out at 10:00am. We’ll be hitting the Hocking Hills area with a lot of hills and twists, and there will even be a short (1 mile or so) bumpy, gravelly portion through the Clear Creek Nature Preserve. No worries though, road bikes will be fine but I’m sure the Uly riders will enjoy it!
Total ride is 130 miles, half of which is pure twisty fun! Lunch will be at the Grouse Nest around 11:30am, after which we’ll hit the majority of the ride.
Here’s a link to the Google map of the ride.
Please note that this ride is technical for much of the twisty portion, be aware of that. I would rate it a 4 on a scale of 1-5. We want to enjoy the twists and turns while riding safely at the same time. Newbies are cautioned against making this their first group ride.
That being said, feel free to bring a non-Bueller friends if you feel so inclined!
