Saturday, Mar. 3 – 9:00 A.M. – Jordy’s Ride & Barbeque Extravaganza! – Home of Jordy Wetzel, 3705 Pishon Trail, just off Hwy. 96, 1 mile west of Hillsboro Rd. intersection – Our new Social Chair, Jordy Wetzel, has planned the Saturday ride, to be followed by a barbeque lunch for all riders!  The ride will start and finish at Jordy’s house, which is in familiar territory just off Hwy. 96.  Pishon Trail goes off Hwy. 96 to the south, one mile west of the traffic light at Hillsboro Rd.  It’s at the foot of the climb on Hwy. 96 up to Waddell Hollow.  We pass it all the time!  Jordy has plenty of parking in his yard and driveway.  Here’s a map of Jordy’s house, indicating where to park:

Jordy has developed two route options of 36 and 55 miles.  Here are the cue sheets:

Leipers Loop – GPS – 55 miles

Leipers Loop – GPS -36 miles

Jordy is expert at smoking meats, so after the ride he will host lunch.  If it’s cool outside, he has a nice basement.  Folks may bring chips and beer; iced tea and sodas will be provided.  We’ll have smoked pork butt for pulled pork and smoked chicken for pulled chicken, along with rolls for making sandwiches.  For sides, we’ll have baked beans and cole slaw.

Coming out of the doldrums of winter, this is a great opportunity to enjoy lunch with your biking buddies and to give Jordy your ideas for more social events during the year.
