I have a 40.4-mile ride with only 962 feet of elevation climb to Browns Mills and back. The rest stop is 23 miles into the ride at a WaWa, Rite-Aid or CVS. Expect to see farmlands, fields and open spaces on backroads with almost NO traffic! I have ridden these roads many times so I know them well. At least half of the roads are quite empty without traffic while some of the busier roads are unavoidable, but safe.

This is a B-level ride, so we will finish somewhere between 15.0 - 16.9 mph. For the pace pushers: If you ride ahead of the group, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. If you want to ride ahead and wait for the group to arrive, that's fine. Understand this though, the group will NOT speed up to keep pace with the faster riders. This is a NO-DROP RIDE, which means we wait for the slowest riders to arrive at intersections where there will be turns.

This will be a quiet, fun ride and I hope to see you all there!
