Bring $2 to enter the park at the end of your ride. The azaleas will be gorgeous at this time of year. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the park or buy a sandwich nearby.

ORIGINAL VERSION: This is the original C/S version of Jeanne's Azalea Ride. The C/S ride departs from Ravine Gardens State Park in Palatka at 10 am and will be led by Bob Lewis. This ride meets at the park at the Twigg Street address above. This ride will follow the 31-mile map posted below. 

FLAT VERSION: The ravine is on a hill and the bridge over the St Johns River is high. If you prefer to avoid riding uphill, Jeanne Hargrave's flat rider group will start from the east side of the river from 10:10 am.  Len Burroughs will arrive with the 30 mile group and will have a ride sheet for the "S-Flat Ride" group waiting at the bank.  

The "S-Flat Ride" version with no hills or bridge will start @ 10:10am from the Capital City Bank located @ 148 US-17, East Palatka, FL 32131.  This is a 19-mile route BUT we may decide to ride out to the "Deep Creek" bridge for a scenic overlook for a 21-mile ride. Contact Len Burroughs.
