BIGFOOT and WOOKIEES have been sighted on the Gainesville Trail SO.......We will ride 30 miles (at the most) at a S/C pace. Different groups may ride on the trail into Gainesville, or on the trail out towards Hawthorne. **NOTE** The G-H Trail has several different overlooks. The trail into Gainesville is approx. 8 miles out and back, so this group will actually do some of the trail out towards Hawthorne and will possibly meet riders coming back from Hawthorne. There will be Ride Leaders doing both routes. A NO DROP ride. PIZZA and A possible Red Hook IPA @ Satchels post ride (1800 NE 23rd Ave).
Look at Google Maps to ensure you have the proper destination. Park at the Trailhead OR you may park just a short distance away at Boulware Springs Park (Boulware Springs is the location of the restroom). Some of us will stop at "Powell's Dairy Freeze" in Starke on the way back from the G-H Trail Ride for some excellent ice cream. 1212 N. Temple Avenue (SR 301) in Starke.
THIS RIDE COUNTS FOR CLUB POINTS AND MILEAGE.
