When: Saturday, August 3, 2019 at 7:45 am
Meet: Starbucks at 5723 Coventry Lane at 7:45 am and condense into cars for 8:00am SHARP departure to drive to the trailhead in Westfield located at 17501 Dartown Rd/Quaker Park for a 10:00 am ride time. Anyone missing the Fort Wayne meet time or wishing to drive separate may meet us in Westfield.
Bring: Spending money, helmet, your camera and a bike lock if you have one. Any type of bike will work for this ride.
The Ride: We will ride the length of the Monon until it joins the Indy Cultural Trail near 10thh street for a sightseeing loop downtown to include The American Legion Mall, The Canal, Indiana State Museum and Monument Circle eventually returning to the Monon for our trip home. We plan for a lunch stop in downtown Indy at the Rathskeller, and possibly a bonus stop in Broad Ripple to quench our thirst or get desert. Total mileage for the tour will be just over 40 miles and it will be all paved.
Pace: Leisurely 10-12 m.p.h.
Return: Although we hope to be home in time for dinner, due to the social nature of this event we can’t make any guarantees.
