COVID-19 Updates

Updated Aug 18th, 2020 - The CDC has determined that masks with exhaust valves are largely ineffective; please don’t wear them on our rides, unless the valve can be closed.  

Updated Aug 6th, 2020 - At the board meeting tonight, it was decided to increase the size of the rides to 8 + 2 and 4 + 1, where there are 8 riders and 2 leaders, or 4 riders and 1 leader. The ride leaders have the discretion to have smaller groups.

You can tie "The Knot" many ways. To deserve the name "The Knot" a ride must come at the crossroads of Tweed Blvd and Clausland Mountain Rd from every direction. This route does not technically achieve this (who wants perfection?). However, it takes in the added climbs of Old Mountain/Christian Herald/Mountain View and Schuyler Rd. Plenty of climbing here.

Thank you Timothy McCarthy for this most imaginative and challenging out and back ride at our door step.
