Title: Guntersville Dam Ride - 41

Distance: 41 miles with two groups

Start Location: Flint River Greenway Parking Lot, 1173 Old Highway 431, Huntsville, 

Date and Start Time: Saturday, October 7 @ 9:00 AM

Ride Leader (15-16mph): Lewis Harmon, lharmon@mchsi.com , 256-651-4537(cell)

Description: It is a ride of ~41 miles that goes directly to the scenic Dam Picnic Area via New Hope. There is no major climb just small rollers. The anticipated average pace is 15-16 mph.  There is an option to add 2.6 miles by riding the McMullen loop near the end of the ride.

The link to the cue sheet & map is: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/24580261.

Rest Stops: 10 miles (Jif-e Mart), 20 miles (Dam’s Picnic Area) and 29.5 miles (Jif-e Mart).

We will monitor the weather due to the forecast for possible rain. Contact Lewis, the Ride Leader, if you have any questions.

Bring a cue sheet and/or map, and/or loaded Garmin to the ride and also have the phone number of the Ride Leader and the phone number of at least one friend.

Again, this is a ride with no major climb just minor rollers. Be sure you can do the specified average pace for the distance. If you choose to ride at a much faster pace than the leader or deviate from the route, then you are on your own.
