dirt road ride, sat 12 aug, 9 am, northville sports den

for those not racing this saturday, come join us for a dirt road ride. we'll leave from the northville sports den at 9 am and do a 60 mile route of almost all dirt roads. no single-track, so bring you gravel, 'cross, or mountain bike. the pace will be moderate / endurance pace (15-ish overall average???), but we'll stop to regroup as often as necessary. and feel free to bring friends with you if you think they'll enjoy a ride like this.

here's the route:

skipping barton hills is an easy way to save energy if you're not feeling it. you can also cut out several miles towards the end if you need to - just keep heading east on 9 mile after we stop in south lyon for fluids.

for those that need more of an epic ride, here's another 40 miles to add on:

a lot of the same roads, so it's not super exciting, but it'll be slightly familiar territory. i'm hoping to ride this extra bit, but things don't always work out like i want :/ bring water in a cooler to keep in your car if you think you might do this.
