Saturday Ride - SCHS at 8:30 am and 9:00 am

After Dave's time in the UK we were worried about him routing us on the wrong side of the road, so you have a substitute ride organizer for one more Saturday.  Looks like we are lucky again with the rain risk decreasing and a morning temperature rising...signs point to a great spring morning on the bike!  Pick one of these nice routes from Station Camp, then recover at Bluegrass.

8:30 am start

9:00 am start
