Here is a link to the route. http://app.strava.com/routes/3201
The route includes dirt roads so bring some nice training tires and make sure to have a spare tube. Road bikes are fine, cross bikes would be great, but I will be on my road bike with some good training tires and wheels. There maybe about 25 miles of dirt roads.
As normal we will start from the Martinsville Starbucks located off of Highway 37 at 9am.
Here are some pictures from previous rides.
Not your typical road signage out this way.
The top of one of my favorite climbs. The Hassettown Rd. Climb
Bear Wallow climb. This climb basically started this whole ride. A story for another day and another blog.
The day the dogs weren't running with us, but the sheep. You never know what your going to get
The start of the Covered Bridge climb. Great place to stop for pictures, especially if you like that burning feeling when you have to start climbing a wall of dirt after stopping.
Hope to see you there,
