Things are looking good for our Unity ride this Saturday with FIVE other clubs!  An option has been added for a 62-Mile route, in addition to the original 44-mile route.  Sean Samber will lead the longer riders from the split at mile 25.  The cue sheets for both routes are available below.  Please wear your Club jersey or Harpeth River Ride jersey so folks will be able to see that the HBC is supporting the ride in force!  Here are the details:

Saturday, Oct. 15 – 9:00 A.M. – Bryan Kortness Memorial Unity Ride! – Gladeville Community Center, 95 McCrary Rd. (near Stewarts Ferry Pike & I-840), Lebanon 37087 – It is unprecedented in our area for so many local clubs to join forces for a ride!  On October 15, the HBC is joining with the Fogbees, Veloteers, Murfreesboro Bike Club, Highland Rimmers, and Ride 615 for a Unity Ride in honor of Bryan Kortness, who was a leading figure in our area for promoting both road and mountain biking and fellowship among local cyclists!  There are two options of 44 and 62 miles, through territory that will be completely new for us.  The routes go east from Gladeville through the area around Cedar Forest State Park, with a rest stop at Norene at mile 21.  It will be followed by a fellowship lunch.  Here are the details, including directions and the cue sheets:

62-mile route

This ride is completely free!  Its principal purpose is to showcase the unity of the cycling community and get to know our comrades in the other clubs.  Those who knew Bryan and wish to honor his role in the cycling community may make a contribution to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, since that disease was a factor in Bryan’s untimely passing in the spring of 2015.  To contribute, go to Donations under the Unity-Ride-details link above.  The HBC is by far the largest participating club, so let’s make sure we have an impressive turnout of our members!
