The Ride South NOB ride is planned for Saturday, October 15! We will leave from the shop at 7:00 AM and ride the 107 miles down the Natchez Trace to the State Park, just outside of Natchez. After a shower and bike loading, we will drive into town to the Magnolia Grille for dinner overlooking the Mississippi River. A nice, leisurely drive back up the Trace, gets us back to the shop by 9:00 PM.
Lane plans to pull the trailer which can accommodate 10 bikes. We will need other SAG (support and gear) vehicles to transport folks to the restaurant and back to the shop. Some folks like to stay overnight and enjoy the annual Hot Air Balloon Glow festivities in Natchez. Let us know if you plan to stay. The timing for the ride works best if riders can maintain 15 mph average speed, with minimal stops. The ride is moderately hilly, especially toward the end. We will have a light lunch provided at Rocky Springs and snack support along the way.
Please let us know if you are interested in the NOB ride, or can help SAG. Riders should bring their change of clothes in a small bag to be loaded in the SAG vehicle Saturday morning. We will determine the cost of the ride and publish other info as soon as we get a head count. This has been a fun ride for many years! We hope you will plan to join us!
Please note that the Ride South shop will be closed for the day, Saturday, October 15.
I am somewhat I. Interested, but not sure I can make it all the way, the most important have ever ridden was about 40, at the birthday challenge last year.
