Saturday is the annual and my personal favorite, Rocky ride out of Circleville High School on Clark Drive. Lots of climbing but not the constant up and down, Instead, magnificent climbs up Rocky Road, Tar Hollow, Thorton Sprung, etc... with long stretches of valley riding. 70 and 50 mile options with all leaving the parking lot at 8:00am. Also, Jon Morgan is organizing a ride out of Starbucks in New Albany of 100 miles, starting at 7:30 but this is Jon Morgan, not to be confused with John Smith and there are no maps so if you go, be prepared for an "A" paced ride for the duration. Andrew C sent me the below for Sunday:
The main route will be going through Lithopolis, Circleville, Tarlton, Amanda, and Carroll, before heading back to Canal. The cutoff route will skip Circleville, and Tarlton. If you didn't get enough of Circleville on Saturday's roving ride or would just like to have some fun in the sun, come on out and join us. Temps are predicted in the upper 80s, but hey, no rain so far. The ride leaves from the Cyclist Connection parking lot in Canal Winchester at 8:00 AM.
