Sunday, Mar. 26 – 10:00 A.M. – Hunters Bend Elementary School, 2121 Fieldstone Pkwy., Franklin – Pancake Polar Bear Ride! –  We continue the Club’s most classic event, the Sunday Pancake Ride.  This will be our last week for a 10:00 start.  We do not designate a formal sweep in the off-season, but we’ll ride in groups and watch out for each other.  The route goes from Fieldstone Farms over to Puckett’s Grocery in Leipers Fork and back.  Riders make the climb up Parker Branch before descending down to Puckett’s for a rest stop.  The direct route back makes a total of 28 miles, but many riders will add extra miles from Puckett’s on the scenic roads south and west of Leipers Fork; the full route for these long riders is usually about 50 miles.

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