B-Group Columbiaville Road Ride

I am late publishing this ride post.

Gang,

As promised, let's meet at Brandon Township Park in Ortonville for a ~50 mile ride to Columbiaville.

Date: Saturday, August 11th
Time: 8:30 am start
Place: 1414 N Hadley Rd, Ortonville, MI 48462
           Brandon Township Community Park
            ~ 1/4 mile north of intersection Oakwood & North Hadley Roads

These roads are beautiful, quiet and freshly paved. Beware however that elevation drops 520 feet riding north followed by 520 feet climb coming home. A majority of that elevation climb is during the last ~4 miles where grade approaches 10%.

B-Group Road Ride to Columbiaville

Well here it is as promised and weather permitting.

This is a faboulous ride on very quiet country roads, stopping at Columbiaville. It begins and ends with a 4-6% undulating grade over ~4 miles, rising to the south. If you can climb that and still breath, this is the ride for you.

Date: Saturday May 27th
Time: 8:30 AM Start
Place: Leave from Brandon Township Community Park
1414 N Hadley Road, Ortonville, MI 48462
NE off corner of  Oakwood & Hadley Roads.
Pace: 18-20 mph cruise 
Distance:  55 mmiles 

This is a no-drop ride. Yes, it is longer and includes a very intimidating climb at the end. Just put your chin into it and smile.
