Pedaling for the Pack this Saturday in Hartsville



Missed the registration deadline for the 840 Gran Fondo? Here's another fine option closer to home. The Cub Scouts in Hartsville are holding a benefit ride Saturday with excellent 33 and 62 mile routes starting at 8 AM from the Hartsville City Park.  This will be my first year for this ride and I'm expecting it to be a low key affair. The 33 mile is scenic yet pretty flat, staying in the basin, while the 62 mile adds the Harmony Road climb to Drury Ridge to the Ford Branch descent, followed by the Pumpkin Branch climb - Sweet! Only $20. Details at http://pack122hartsville.scoutlander.com, go to Upcoming Events.

Darn, I'd planned to loaf this weekend but with such nice weather and great choices...
My heart is in Hartsville. Dave, did you create this route? The 62 goes on several roads new to me so that's the ride for me. Any others who want to ride long but slow will not ride alone.

I didn't create the route. I too noticed some roads I haven't ridden...the river bend area southeast of town in particular.

Miley said...

sorry...I meant southwest of town

Bruce,

I will probably be slower than you! Sounds like a good ride.

The map my ride cue sheet was pretty confusing. I remapped it into Ride with GPS and will bring some cue sheets. Hopefully the roads will be well marked.
