In memory of our good friend, we would like to make sure the friendly spirit of his ride lives on :-)

The Kiln Creek Riding Experience

This ride is an option to get some miles in during the winter when it's too dark after work for the regular summer evening rides.
Clockwise on the Kiln Creek Loop, 3.3 miles per lap, 6 - 12 Laps.
We start around 5:30 pm, but since this is on a short loop, riders will be lapping past the park about every 10 minutes, so it's easy to join in at any point.
