I’m planning a bike ride as a club outing for Saturday, Nov 13. Anyone interested? I’m going to the Falling Water trail, on the west side of Jackson – see the link below for more details. The trail is a linear park, and is part of the Jackson County park system. It’s a paved stretch of abandoned railroad line, and runs about 10 miles from end to end.
The plan is to drive down, take a fun ride with the group, and then head for a local pub to replace all those fluids we will have lost from our exertions. If they happen to have a great hamburger or Reuben or basket of curly fries, so much the better! This is sort of a last minute activity, and it’s heavily dependent on weather. If Saturday is just a bust weather-wise, then Sunday the 14th is my fallback date. Starting time is a bit fluid at the moment, but we’ll meet sometime Saturday morning and caravan down. If you’re interested, drop me a line, and I’ll send directions to everyone that replies.
Also – I know that bikes can be more trouble to transport than a kayak. If you have room to carry a bike for someone else, let me know. I can possibly carry a few extras if necessary in my truck or on a trailer, as long as I know ahead of time.

Some more details on this trip:
We will meet at the Sunoco gas station on Dunckel Rd, just east of exit 11 on US-127. I will be there by 8:45, and plan to leave at 9 AM. The gas station has food, coffee, and restrooms. Look for my truck – a dark grey Ford Ranger. I plan to leave by 9 AM.
PS: The fallback date in case of rain is Sunday, Nov. 14. Yes, I know Monday is Opening Day of deer season. If you’re a hunter, that’s fine. Just please don’t shoot us off our bikes, OK? Deer don’t have wheels! 🙂
