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:
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!
