This is a "Veterans Day Ride". We will ride 30 miles at a S/C pace with several rest stops including the POW/MIA Memorial Park at the Cecil Airport. A NO DROP Social/C pace ride with attention to cyclists who want to learn to ride with groups. Please check the NFBC Calendar and Forum (Announcements) for ANY changes to the ride start time or cancelations prior to leaving for the ride. At times we may ride faster than the posted speed. If you haven't ridden at this pace or distance you may want to practice on one of the paved bikes trails first. Join us as we bike around the former Naval Air Station Cecil Field area. There are several static aircraft displays including an A-7E Corsair and an F/A-18 Hornet near the Cecil ATC Tower.
The A/B ride follows a slightly different route and is 37 miles. The rest stop comes early at about 10 miles then we jump on the Baldwin Rail Trail. The visit to Memorial Park is near the end of the ride.
