We’ll start to load bikes at Ben Butterworth Parkway (5466 Old River Drive) at 6:30 a.m. and leave at 7 a.m. for our starting destination. Please bring a blanket to protect your bike during transportation to our starting point. There will be two buses, with a limit of about 90 people. The drive normally takes about two hours. Once there, we’ll unload the bikes and send you on your way after handing out cue sheets. We will have a secure area (probably a locked trailer) for any gear you don’t want to haul back on your bike. There will be a basic sag stop about 50 to 60 miles into the ride.
