Today’s regular HBC Pancake Ride, previously scheduled at 9:00 from Hunters Bend, is CANCELLED. With the cold and snowy conditions, there are bound to be slick spots on the roads.
RIDE CANCELLED DUE TO COLD AND SNOWY CONDITIONS – Sunday, Jan. 20 – 9:00 A.M. – Pancake Polar Bear Ride – Hunters 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!
