This Saturday (October 4th) SIW is hosting a day of riding from Silver Creek High School. You can ride any combination of rides to get 15 to 100 miles and can start at any time between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm.
The forecast is for excellent cycling weather Ė hope to see you at Silver Creek on Saturday!
Please bring canned goods for a local food pantry. Most needed are fruit, green beans, and chicken noodle soup.
Contact Susie Hammond (502-494-4045) or Jeanne Garrison-Young (812-252-9371) if you have any questions.
When you start and which route(s) you ride are up to you. Sign-in opens at 8:00 am. There will be a SAG at SCHS (food and drinks) starting at 10:00 am. Lunch will be available starting at 11:00 am. There will be water and Gatorade at the SAG but access to water is limited, so please fill your water bottles before you come.
Sign-in will close at 3:00 pm and the SAG will close at 4:00 pm.
No roving SAG will be available so plan accordingly.
Since there will be no specific start time for any ride, it is suggested that you get a ride group together so that you are not riding alone. Also, since there will only be one SAG and no roving SAG, plan to do multiple routes from Silver Creek if you are going to do more than 55 miles.

Do you know where this inviting trail is?There is an opportunity "right in our own backyard" for a rail trail from New Albany to Clarksville. The trail would extend from Silver Street in New Albany all the way West to Clark Blvd. in Clarksville, just past I-65.
