Come along for a beautiful loop ride from Lake Wilderness to the Green River Gorge.  We start with a descent to the Cedar River and then ride through Dorre Don.  There is a short section (0.3 miles) of packed gravel on the Cedar River Trail then a short climb on pavement (100 yards) up to cruise through quiet neighborhoods.  The first rest stop is at S'wiched for an early Lunch about 11:00 am (mile 13).  After lunch, we head south through the forest to Cumberland and descend to the Green River Gorge for a photo op.  Then a gradual 3 mile climb up to Black Diamond for our second rest stop (mile 35).  We should be back at the cars about 2:30 - 3:00 pm.

Start: Meet in the Lake Wilderness Lodge parking lot at 9:45 am for the pre-ride safety briefing and route review.  Departure is at 10:00 am.  There are porta-pots available at the start.

Regroup: We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, we will regroup frequently.

What to Bring: 1) Money for lunch at S'wiched - See menu link below - Face mask is required;  2) A spare tube and tools to fix a flat;  3) Two full water bottles;  4) A cell phone in case you cannot finish the ride;  5) If you would like a Route Map and Cue Sheet, print one from the RWGPS link below.

Cancelation: If weather conditions meet the weather cancelation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions, the Ride Leader will post a ride-canceled note in the Comments section below at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader will not be at the start.

Hope you can join us!
