Urban Assault Ride & Monthly Meeting Tues. May 21 @6pm
« on: May 17, 2013, 01:18:25 PM »
Come join us before the monthly meeting this Tuesday at Kickstand Bar & Grill, 1101 Central Ave, at 6pm for an urban assault ride around the streets and greenways of downtown Charlotte.

We have a new and exciting route for this year - it's approx. 10 miles and takes us on the new Little Sugar Creek Greenway, along the light rail path, around Bank of America stadium and to Marshall Park.

This ride is meant to be ridden on your mountain bike as we will cross over grass and rocks and even ride down some stairs if you are up for it. :)

We will be back in time for the Diva meeting that starts at 7:30 where you can change clothes and order your dinner.

Please be a little early and ready to ride at 6PM.

See you there!
Melissa

What a fun ride! Is there any way someone can post the route we rode so I can attempt to replicate it? Thanks!   ;D
