Title: Guntersville Dam & Meander New Hope
Distance: 52 miles
Start Location: 1173 Old 431 Highway, Huntsville, AL (Flint River Greenway)
Date and Start Time: Saturday, 5 Oct @ 7:30 AM
Ride Leader: Hunter Chockley, email@example.com, 256 527-8643 (cell)
This is a moderate ride of ~52 miles that goes to the Dam Picnic Area (with rest rooms) & then meanders through New Hope. The anticipated average pace (at the end of the ride) is 15-16 mph & the cumulative climb is ~1287 ft. The link to the cue sheet & map is: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28465105.
Riders are expected to ride in a group. I expect much faster riders will participate, if so, I will let them go first.
Rest Stops: 10.5 miles (Jiff-E-Mart), 20 miles (Picnic Area) & 29.5 miles (Jiff-E-Mart).
Bring a cue sheet and/or a navigational device and also have the phone number of the Ride Leader & if possible, the phone number of at least one friend.
Again, this is a moderate ride of 52 miles and there is no mountain climb. Please be sure you can do the distance at the specified pace. If you choose to ride at a much faster pace than the leader or deviate from the route, then you are on your own.
