Hello! It's July -- Tour de France time, so we thought we would have a "Tour de Mark" and honor him with a second stage. In addition to the great ride on July 11 reliving Mark's hard core Hocking Hills ride -- (thanks to Woody) we thought we would hold the "Col de Antrim" stage. This ride will be an easy pace up the path, ending at the Urban Coffee house, where we have a "coffee roast" and share a few stories about Mark. Here is the schedule;
Tour de Mark (Col de Antrim) -- Assault on Olentangy Bike Path
2:15 - Meet at Park of Roses (we'll put black cards in spokes to ride up the path -- like arm bands!) 2:30 - Leave Park of Roses as a peloton, head north
3:15 - 3:30 Arrive at Urban Coffee at base of Worthington Hills
3:30 - "Coffee Roast for Mark" -- with stories, memories, expressions (everyone who wants to share)
4:15 - ish -- Ride back to Park of Roses (or wherever people are going)
If you are not able to make the ride (or prefer someone else to share your story) please fell free to send a memory to me in writing. I will read it at the "coffee roast."
Although you don't have to, it might be helpful if I have an idea of how many people will be joining us (to prepare the coffee house). Let me know if you'll be coming if you know -- but please don't hesitate to come even if you decide last minute or aren't sure. We want everyone to come out. Looking forward to seeing everyone on August 8 at 2:15. Best, Lisa
