5 Sunday Rides for September

Tune up for great rides in September!

We will have 5 organized rides on Sundays in September.

They can be viewed on our Group’s calendar page HERE,  and are described below.  Tune up and join us when you can!

  • September 2nd –  4:00 p.m.  – Fairhope East Ride: We will meet in the parking area in front of FRED’s in Fairhope, way out near the trees and the sidewalk.  We will be riding on the sidewalks on the east side of town.  We will end with a Subway/Cold Snap social, so feel free to bring a little spending money or your own snack and beverage.  This is a very flat sidewalk route in the commercial area out near the 4 lane Hwy 98.
  • September 9th –  4:00 p.m.Fairhope Pier to Grand Hotel:  We will meet near the south end of the Fairhope Pier Rose Garden, then ride south along the Eastern Shore Trail toward Point Clear’s Grand Hotel. This is an 8-10 mile route, depending on side-trips. Kathy will be “trip leader” for this route.
  • September 16th – 4:00 p.m.  –  Kim’s Choice Daphne Ride:  Kim is going to be the “trip leader” for this route.  The group will meet in the parking lot at the north side of the Daphne Public Library.  We will ride out along the Eastern Shore Trail, which is hilly in this location, but very scenic.  Kim will determine the exact route so be ready for a great time.
  • Morning Ride at 10:00 in Orange Beach

  • September 23rd – 10:00 a.m.  Morning Ride in Orange Beach:  Chris and Alison will be “trip leaders” for this ride in Orange Beach along the BackCountry Trails.  The group will start from the trailhead at the Sportsplex in Orange Beach.  This is located just off Canal Road, just east of the Toll Bridge.  Continue through the parking lot, past the big soccer fields.  You’ll see an arched entryway to the trails.  For more info on the trails, see http://www.backcountrytrail.com/.   or see Trail Map HERE.
  • September 30th – 4:00 p.m.  Mullet Point to Grand Hotel:   Begins at Mullet Point Park on Baldwin County Road #1, which is 5 miles south of the Grand Hotel in Point Clear. We will ride along the paved Eastern Shore Trail north to the Grand Hotel, take a rest break, then return to Mullet Point Park. 10 miles roundtrip. Very flat. Appropriate for Beginners and Families. Takes about an hour and a half to complete at our slow, social pace.
