Larry G

Date: Friday, July 4, 2014

Time: 7:00am (ride briefing at 6:45), plus alternate second start at 7:45am

Location: Oakland Cafe

Leader: Larry G

Route: 12.5 mile loop

Distance: 50 miles (other options available)

Speed: Up to each participant

Terrain: Mix of flats and mild rollers

Remarks: One of the Shoals Cycling Club's most popular annual rides returns with the 2014 edition of the Firecracker Fifty!

The format is simple: four laps around a 12.5 mile loop, riding as fast as you want to go. Or as slowly. The terrain is gentle, making this a ride suitable for cyclists of any ability level. If the four laps of the full 50 miles is too much, you can ride only three. Or two. Or one. You can even tack on a fifth lap and get in a metric century.

As in past years the course is fully marked with RED ARROWS, so no one can get lost.

The ride briefing will be at 6:45am and the start at 7:00. The first lap should take about 45 minutes, so an alternate starting time of 7:45 is offered for those who don't want to get up so early, or who plan to ride fewer laps.

Starting time may be altered due to weather; please monitor the club web site or Facebook page.
