Here are some updates for this coming weekend's rides:
Saturday, July 7: Friends of the Depot Ride.
Meet at Cup O' Joe on Cedar Falls package at 9:00 am. Bike the trails system to Gilbertville to join the “Friends of the Depot” celebrating the 100th year birthday of the Gilbertville Depot, then on to La Porte for lunch and return ride back to Cedar Falls. The Friends of the Depot are trying to save the Gilbertville Depot from being torn down and keep it as a landmark on the Cedar Valley Nature Trail.
Heat Alternative: Flamingos wishing to ride earlier and avoid some of the heat, can meet at Bill and Moria Brown's home at 8:00 am for ride to Gilbertville and back. They will probably do lunch in Evansdale instead of riding on to LaPorte.
Sunday, July 8: Trinity Ride: Same ride but with start time moved up to 8:00 am for heat relief.
Meet at Cup O' Joe on Cedar Falls parkade at 8:00 am. Bike on trail to Waterloo to Hudson and back to Cedar Falls. Lunch at Mulligan’s at Noon. Bike the trails again at 1:00 pm. Morning ride and afternoon ride both approximately 30 miles each.
See you this weekend.
