Ben's estimated arrival in Houghton is between 1:30 and 3:15 PM on Thursday. We’ll meet up under the lift bridge on the Houghton side between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM (earlier if you so desire), depending on how long you’d like to ride and when you can pull yourself away from the daily grind.
Folks can head out in waves depending on their speed and the desired length of ride. In other words, if you get there and you’re ready to go, go! The "group" will form as folks meet Ben along the route and turn back.
Notes about the route
As of 11 Jul 2017, Covered Dr (mile 6.3 to 9.4) is freshly graded with some loose gravel. Freda Crosscut aka Beacon Hill Toivola Rd (12.6 to 20.7) will have some sandy sections and short wet sections requiring hike-a-bike. Road bikes may want to wait at Beacon Hill (12.6).
If you'd like to ride further out or have questions about the route, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Others may be working their way out there via alternate routes, we'll see them on the way back.
And if you can't make the ride, we'd love to see you at 7:00 PM at the Orpheum! The theater bar is not currently open, so BYOB if you wish.
