Who would like a 40 mile Greenway Organized Ride?
Here in Durham NC, we will be putting the finishing touches on a 20 mile greenway, when the last few blocks are finished this Spring. We are considering sponsoring an 40 mile organized ride (to go down and back), to promote the completed trail, and I wanted to get input from those of you who go on organized rides and tour. FYI, it is a compilation of many types of riding surfaces, ranging from sidewalk, wood board bridges, concrete, asphalt (a little is a bit old and beat up), and even a few miles of packed earth. It goes through Downtown and into the country, it passes by a Museum and a Minor League Ball Park, and lots of recreational parks. With the curb cuts and some less than smooth terrain, skinny road tires would likely be the least enjoyable tire option, and would probably be promoted that way.
Let me know how you feel about riding on greenways, and organized rides, along with suggestions or concerns you might have. I see lots of different types of rides being promoted these days, and think it's a good idea; I certainly like riding on it and do it whenever I can. Thanks for your feedback.
