1st Ride

I have an idea for a first ride for the RCCS. David is ready for me to organize and I am too. I don't have firm plans, but I'm thinking that the ride will leave KY, visits IN and the Loop Island Wetlands, and then returns to KY for a snack. I don't know the mileage yet but I'm thinking a 30-miler is the goal with a food stop somewhere in the third portion of the ride.

Loop Island is an area I found during a November ride to Edwardsville. I think it would make an excellent first destination because I have a feeling it's not widely known. With the recent moisture it might be a mess, but we'll see. That's what the journey is for.

River City Cycling Society

The Society has commenced. I figure if even 2 of us want a differentcycling experience in the area, that's enough for me. Driving home from the in-laws today, I had several thoughts about places, routes, and experiences that interest me. I'm going to be sharing them this week on this new blog. I think this should be one of those open blogs that others like-minded folk can post to as well. I may be a society of 1, but I'm going to make the effort because the promise is immense. If you are interested, jump on in.

Peace and Safety on the road.
