Meet at Johnson’s Corner Grocery & Grill (and gas station) at the corner of US421 and NC210 – as going to Moore’s Creek. This will be a ride of approximately 50 miles with a store (well) past the halfway point – a few miles past the ferry (ferry# 910-669-2020). A longer metric century option is available.
You are responsible for printing your own copy of the map(s). Do not expect the ride leader to provide any at the start of the ride. If you do not have facilities to accomplish this then email a request to the ride leader to possibly make one for you. There is one store stop at mile 33.
There will be at least three pace groups. The “Need for Speed” group riding at a pace above 20 mph, the “Middle of the Road” group riding at a pace of 17-20 mph, and the “Fun in the Sun” group riding at a pace of 14-16 mph. We regroup at convenient points on the route…no one left behind. Weather varies with the season, so dress in layers or apply sunscreen accordingly, and of course, wear a helmet. Bring plenty of beverage & snacks because much of our riding is in rural areas.
Everyone needs to plan on arriving 15 minutes before the ride is scheduled to ROLL OUT. If there is a steady rain, the ride is canceled.
Please take a moment to review the CFC Ride Policies, if you are not already familiar with them.
