As previously announced, I am planning a "deliberately casual" group ride for the day after Thanksgiving. The ride will start at 10am on that Friday from Fishback Elementary, located at 86th and Lafayette Road. The ride should cover slightly more than 100 kilometers and riding near Eagle Creek, up to Lebanon, back through Whitestown and Zionsville, up into Westfield and then back down through Carmel before returning west along 106th Street through Zionsville again and Traders' Point, finishing back at the school. I test rode the route in two parts last weekend and think it should ride pretty well and for the most part avoid too much of the Black Friday crowds.
As long as the 10am temperature is above 35 degrees and there is no snow on the ground, the ride will take place.
Please take a look at the route in the link below, and let me know if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions. Hopefully if you are in the central Indiana area I will see you there.
