Elbe Multi-Strada Loop 2015

  Now in its fifth year!

This is a 46.8 mi./4037 ft. elev. self-supported group bike ride, 19 miles of which are on gravel roads around Pack Forest and Scott Turner/Eatonville National and Stoner roads. Start/Finish in Elbe.

Nothing technical, but expect the gravel roads to be anywhere from pot-holed to smooth. Mt bikes, ‘cross bikes, road bikes (minimum 32mm tires recommended), any will likely suffice, but each will have a disadvantage somewhere along the route.

See http://ridewithgps.com/routes/6669229 or https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/8604828 for the route.

Same route as 2015, 2016 and 2017.

This is NOT a race, but also not a leisurely stroll. Go at your own pace. We will meet up for a no-host lunch after the ride at the Elbe Bar and Grill (good burgers!) to regale over the ride, and other adventures.

Cue sheets will be available at the start. You will be asked to sign a standard waiver form.
