    Memorial Day Social Ride

    The Memorial Day social ride will start at the Silver Creek Metro Park at 1pm (tentatively) on Monday, May 25, 2009 and will be a 30-50 mile rolling ride through parts of Summit, Wayne and Stark counties. Maps of the route and the meeting spot to follow, but wanted to get the day, time and meeting point out there now, so people can plan.

    Please respond in this thread if you plan on joining us.

    Where in the park would we be meeting?
    Here is a map: On page 2

    Also, what is the proposed route?
    For Trade
    Have: MKS AR-8 pedals for toe-clip/cleat
    Older Red/White LOOK clipless pedals
    Want: Platform style toe-clip pedals preferably MKS or SunTour

    A lighthouse in Kentucky? I should be so lucky.

    As per the directions I wrote, it is the first road/parking area on your right when you enter the park from Hametown (Pheasant Run).

    The route is still being finalized to ensure it's fairly easy and in the 30ish mile range. I'm thinking we'll either ride to Marshallville, then over to Canal Fulton for some ice cream, then back, or down to Dalton for a snack at one of the gas stops and back, or some combo thereof. Traffic levels on these roads is usually med-light to scarce.

    Kristen, you should come. it's only 100 miles. you could ride it and have a century on us before you get there!

    Gary, I assume this means youre in? I certainly hope so.

    Has anyone talked to the guys that were on the first trip? I think they might be down.

    Do we have a route finalized yet?

    I am trying.....I would love to meet all of you as well. Memorial day is tuff because I feel like a heel for leaving the family. In fact Saturdays JJJ ride which I have had penciled in for sometime now is running into issues. The wife SAYS she does not mind me going but again...I feel like a heel for chucking the wife and kids on a holiday weekend for a bike ride.......

    I'll be there, with the 15 year old who kicks my butt on hills. Are we still planning on a potluck gathering after? I can bring the "good" beverages.

    I'm off tomorrow, so I'll probably take a ride to finalize the route. I'm gonna make it easy...30-40 miles, mostly rollers, perhaps a 14-15mph average speed, no drop. Since we have to start so late and Tuesday is back to work, I doubt we'll have time to do a pot luck afterward. I've got a couple possible ice cream stops in the area tho...I'll check tomorrow to see which will be open on Memorial day (most likely the one in Canal Fulton)

    So what do we have...a couple of for sures and a couple of maybes?

    Most of the rollers are no steeper than the overpass, though some may be a little longer. The steep ones are mercifully short.
