The 2013 RideSouth Signature Ride is imminent! We will launch from the RideSouth shop THIS SATURDAY at 7:00 AM! It is 117 miles to Hattiesburg and 109 miles back with a little over 6000 feet of climbing! What a great way to spend a weekend!
Activities during the week include a Workshop Series Flat Repair Clinic on Thursday, March 21, at 6:00 PM. We will have a brief presentation and some hands-on repair tips for everyone.
Friday, March 22, we will have a brief meeting for all riders, SAG volunteers and guests from 6:00 PM – 6:30 PM. We will have excellent riding fare following the meeting catered in by Time-Out, including Chicken Pasta, salad, bread and refreshments. Come and help us finalize transport plans, meet your fellow riders and fuel up for a great adventure! Please register and sign the waiver while you are here. We will give out maps and cue cards for folks that are launching with us at RideSouth that should be turned in at the reception in Hattiesburg for tee shirts and medals (RideSouth launchers)! Remember to bring your clothes bag if you plan to stay overnight and ride back with us on Sunday.
Arrive early on Saturday and be ready to launch on time. Here is a Ride Fact Sheet that Lane has prepared for you. We know you will enjoy the roads to Prentiss and of course, the Longleaf Trace. If you want to preview the ride, just click on the Pre-Ride video in one of our previous posts. You can find that just below this post on our website. Thanks for participating and have fun!
