-Length: 3-4 hour ride on backcountry trails of intermediate to advanced terrain. Expect 30-45 minutes drive time each way to/from the ride’s start.
-Location: Varies each week. We’ll try to make the selection by Thursday every week, but the location is subject to change at the last minute to accommodate current weather and trail conditions.

Bring water and wear sturdy boots/shoes (no sneakers). We’ll provide the tools and gloves. Enter through the south gate by the guard shack, take the first left, up the hill, past the pavilion and look for the first right after the pavilion. We’re at the top of that hill.
The REAL (or at least original) Annual Bicycle Coalition Summer Ice Cream Ride will be held on August 24th. As for the past 2 decades, your bicycle Coalition will cover your ice cream after the ride. This ride is LONGER and brisker than the “Ice Cream Rides” associated with Bike Month. Plan on more of a Wednesday night social ride type of event (about two hours) but with ice cream after the ride.
When: Saturday August 24 @ 9:30am (NEW TIME)
Where: Meet at Rockingham Park at the Crossroads (1 Rockingham Park Way, Penn Laird, VA 22846)
What: Figure a ride of about two hours with an ice cream stop thrown in there. Plan on 20 miles.
Ride Leader: contact Jody Hensley (540-476-1827) with any questions
