In Like a Lion: March Rides and More

Lion on BikeMarch is here, and the Lion says, “Let’s ride!”

Sunday, March 2nd, 4:00 The Big, Hilly, Circular Ride: Come try a new route with us. We’ll meet-up at the Fairhope Library and ride a big circle that includes some great Fairhope hills! We’ll tackle them nice and SLOW, stopping as often as needed to catch a breath. This circular route heads down Fairwood Blvd, to Gayfer, to the sidewalk along Hwy 98, past Volanta Park (this is where the hills start), returning to downtown via the Eastern Shore Trail along North Section Street.  Post ride refreshments at a local eatery.

Monday, March 4th, 4:30 Ride and 5:00 Meeting: Support Complete Streets
