Saturday, June 16 – Picnic Ride & HBC Annual Picnic! – Edwin Warner Park, Shelter 3, Vaughn Road just off Old Hickory Blvd. – We weren’t able to have the Kickoff Ride and Annual Picnic in April, so we have scheduled the picnic and ride for this Saturday.  It looks to be dry but hot!  The ride will leave from Edwin Warner Park, Shelter 3.  It will be followed by the Annual Picnic when the riders return.  Starting times for the different routes will be staggered so the riders will finish at about the same time and can enjoy the picnic together.  Thanks to those who have volunteered to lead the various routes and make sure everyone returns safely.  Here are the route options and cue sheets:

8:00 – Long route begins – 57 miles – Wade Buttrey will sweep

2018 Picnic Ride – Long route

9:00 – Medium route begins – 39 miles – Dan Fisher will sweep
9:00 – Short route begins – 28 miles – Debbie Wason will sweep
8:30 – CycleLite Ride on the Short route – Regina Jensen will lead the CycleLite riders, following the group’s guidelines of a 13-14 mph pace, frequent regrouping, and no drop.  Therefore, they will begin the ride at 8:30.
At approximately 11:30 when the riders return, we will have a picnic at Shelter 3.  The club will provide burgers, brats, and soft drinks.  Riders are requested to bring a side dish, salad, or dessert to share.  Our Social Chair, Jordy Wetzel, will be supervising the cookout and food!
Our new club jerseys will be available for purchase at the Picnic!  You may purchase your jersey for $60 from Stan Davey, our President.  Please have either cash or a check.  The jerseys are proving quite popular – here are photos, front and back:

Sunday, June 17 – 8:00 A.M. – Car-Free Father’s Day Natchez Trace Ride – Hillsboro Elementary School, 5412 Pinewood Rd. in Leipers Fork – There can’t be a better follow-up to our Annual Picnic than a Sunday ride on “The Trace,” which will be CLOSED to vehicular traffic from 8:00 A.M. until noon between Garrison Creek and Mile 440.  So instead of the usual Pancake Ride, one of our newer club members, James Toporcer, suggested this ride and will lead us up Pinewood.  Let’s ride in unity for this one-mile warmup!  Once your front tire hits the Natchez Trace Parkway, it’s up to you if you want to click your Garmin and set a record or just enjoy a casual ride.  Route choices are endless but here are two suggestions:

Trace Short Route – 24 miles

Trace Two Laps Route – 51 miles

So don’t miss these two special weekend opportunities!
