Tuesday and Thursday Night Training Rides Routes

By Bruce Wells on 3/06/16 updated 2/22/17

The Tuesday and Thursday night training rides start March 14th for the 2017 DST season.  Check the ride schedule for starting times and mileage, as it varies depending on the daylight available.

Many people have been asking for the routes for the Tuesday and Thursday night training rides.  So here they are.  They are listed in ascending order by mileage.  Each route is known by the road on which we turn around.  So if we say we are doing Rt 22, that means we turn back on Rt 22.

First some basics
