Mt. Magazine Cycling Adventure Day (Saturday July 11th)
It’s a difficult time of year to try and plan/organize anything, but I thought it might be worth a shot to at least toss an idea out. Never ridden the below route and would love some company. My general thought would be something like:
- Group up and pull out of Fayetteville at 7:00 am
- Unload and mount up on the bikes in Ozark by 08:15
- Rough estimate of 6 hours saddle time
- Load back up in Ozark and head out by 2:30
- Arrive back in F’ville around 3:30
Obviously, I’ve left plenty of folks off that might want to join the adventure, so feel free to pass along. The route and proposed schedule can easily be altered as well. If Paris is used as the start/end point, it would cut the ride down to about 56 miles.
