8:00 A.M. – Hunters Bend Elementary School, 2121 Fieldstone Pkwy., Franklin – Pancake Ride – The Club’s most classic event is the regular Sunday Pancake Ride from Fieldstone Farms over to Leipers Fork. Riders take the rolling course to the end of Boyd Mill Pike and then make the climb up Parker Branch. The direct route then descends to Puckett’s for a rest stop and heads back for a total of 28 miles. During the Prime Season, we designate a ride leader each week who will sweep the route and make sure everyone has safely returned at the end. Many riders will add extra miles from Parker Branch or 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.
