Frenchman's Bar/ 18.4 mi / 14 pace / 355' / RL Joe Cote / 10AM

Length: 18.4 miles
Pace: 14 mph
Terrain: Flat
Elevation: 355 feet
Ride Type: Re-Group
Cancelation Guidelines: Rain / Temps < 40F / Lightening / Wind > 25 mph


One of the prettiest routes in the area. Ride to Frenchman’s Bar Park and back. The park offers a good rest stop with water fountains and restrooms. It is right on the river so we can watch the ships, birds and fisherman (on a warm day you might want to sit for awhile). On a good day we can see four mountains. In the spring and fall the wetlands are teaming with birds of all kinds. You are almost guarenteed to see osprey. Be aware that traffic can be bad on warm weekends and evenings. This route can also have lots of glass, so be prepared for flats.

Slower riders are welcome but should be prepared to ride on their own.  Since this is an out and back, so you will see the faster riders on the way back.  We will also take a longer rest stop at Frenchman's Bar.


Registration is required and almost always free to both members and non-members. Please scroll to the bottom of this page to register for this event.
