Today’s Pancake Ride, previously scheduled for 9:00 from Hunters Bend, is CANCELLED due to rain.  The morning looks sloppy and roads will remain wet even if the rain subsides.  But, WOW, it was a great time at the Party last night!  So we got to see most of our HBC pals even even we couldn’t ride this weekend!

We’ll hope for better weather next week!

RIDE CANCELLED DUE TO RAINSunday, Dec. 9 – 9:00 A.M. – Pancake Polar Bear RideHunters Bend Elementary School, 2121 Fieldstone Pkwy., Franklin – The Club’s most classic event is the regular Sunday Pancake Ride from Fieldstone Farms over to Leipers Fork.  During the off-season we don’t designate a formal sweeper, but we’ll ride in groups and watch out for each other.  Riders take the rolling course to the end of Boyd Mill Pike and then usually make the climb up Parker Branch.  The direct route then descends to Leipers Fork for a rest stop and heads back for a total of 28 miles.  Many riders will add extra miles from Parker Branch or the rest stop, enjoying the scenic roads south and west of Leipers Fork; the full route for these long riders is usually about 50 miles.  And sometimes we mix it up and do something totally different!

This is not called the Pancake Ride because it is flat or easy, but because you can enjoy some tasty treats at Leipers Fork!  While new riders are encouraged to participate, the route is moderately hilly and is inappropriate for rank beginners.
