Saturday Ride #2 from Cumberland Park, 3/23/13

We were very pleased to have about 50 riders participate and give comments on the USBR 23 North route alternatives last Saturday.  This Saturday we will ride the South route alternatives from Cumberland Park to Franklin and return.  

The ride starts in Cumberland Park at 9:00 Saturday, March 23.  Cumberland Park is located near the south side of Titans stadium on S 1st Street, between the Shelby Street Pedestrian and Korean Veterans Blvd Bridges.  Park in Lot R.  


The routes this weekend will have less elevation change and less steep grades. 

The Long Route will be 48 Miles, with 2600 ft of elevation change and 9% maximum grade.

A big "Thank You" to all who came out last week. This Saturday's ride should be a real treat for Fogbees. It goes over the best of the original Wounded Warriors route and then returns through the heart of Music Row with quaint Old Franklin in the middle. Last week's ride had a clear winner, East through Shelby Bottoms, to my surprise. Let's hope the weather cooperates. We need numbers for statistical significance.

And a really big Thank You to David Shumaker for making this happen.
