Saturday will have 2 rides:
An 18 mile loop to a neighboring town and back.
An 8 Mile Ride “Chicken Run”
Sunday is the Alfred Century tour for Habitat for Humanity. A great ride for a great cause! The out-and-back course allows you to turn when it suits you and ride the distance that suits you best. It is pretty level with only one rated climb, a class 5 (the easiest) Traffic is typically light, especially on Sundays. The few small towns along the way have grocery stores to gather munchies etc.
100 Mile ride with Turnarounds for 25, 50, 66 (100k) as well.
