Sunday, Jan. 27 – 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.

And sometimes we mix it up and do something totally different!
