Monday Exploration Ride
Monday May 13, 6:45pm
This casual ride will visit bike paths and trails with some in-street riding to get to them. Less than 15 miles and less than 10mph average speed. Rest stops will be included as needed. Helmets are required, and lycra will not be needed. This will be the casual version of the Cincinnati Cycle Club -Team Cycling and Fitness Ride from the same location on the weeks offered. We will leave just a few minutes after the, mostly Lycra clad, 25 mile riders. Arrive a few minutes early to check your bike and sign waivers. Please park on the east end of the Kroger parking lot that joins up to Vine St. Proceed to join the group with care to avoid patrons in the parking lot. Hartwell Kroger, 8241 Vine St.
- The Right Angle is the Best Angle
Always slow down and cross streetcar tracks at a 60 to 90 degree angle. Crossing incorrectly can result in your front tire sliding on the rail or geting stuck in the gap next to the rail, which can cause you to fall from your bicycle.
