Cycle in the City Ride this Sunday 7/16

Posted by Steve Reiter on July 13, 2017

A message from John Allen: Sorry to be a little late this month – things are crazy at home.

This months ride repeats one from last year. The short ride (10.5 miles) is primarily and intentionally in bike lanes. It goes through the university area, which means that it goes up the hill on University Avenue and then up more hill on Comstock. There is one more hill coming back on E Genesee Street. I would not describe it has particularly hilly but there were some people last year who considered it hillier than they liked.

The longer ride (14.5 miles) follows the same route but includes a loop along Nottingham Road, which involves some uphill and then a good downhill to Jamesville Road. Good brakes are needed. We will pass the future location of the DeWitt Library, which is on Jamesville Road.

The rides begin at 9 am from the Creek Walk trailhead in Armory Square. Jefferson Street next to the M.O.S.T.

Sorry that I missed the June ride. My back has pretty much recovered, even surviving a solo drive to North Carolina and back last week. I may be a little slower than usual, having done a total of 18 miles in the past five weeks.
