On Saturday, September 12th we will meet in downtown Lake Geneva for our annual circum-navigational bike/bar ride around the lake!
Here’s ‘just the facts’:
THIS IS AN ALL DAY EVENT – START time depends on what you want to do:
o Want some BREAKFAST before the ride? We will meet for breakfast at Lake-Aire Restaurant (804 W. Main Street, Lake Geneva) around 9/9:30a.
o No Breakfast: Just want to ride? We’ll meet in the parking lot behind Champs (747 W. Main Street) READY TO RIDE at 11:15am.
o THIS RIDE IS SOCIAL! The purpose is to be outside, enjoy the company of friends in good scenery with a bit of biking and beverages in between.
o There are 4-hour meters all over Lake Geneva --- try to find a spot without meters. We’ve had luck with a little lot at the corner of Sage St and Geneva St. (Look for the Starbucks on the corner of Main St – aka Hwy 50 – and Center St, turn right to first street which is Geneva and turn right again to end which is Sage)
o The ride is approximately 21 miles along a rolling landscape: some of the landscape is gentle, a small bit of it is not, all of it makes for a fun ride.
o There are 5 pubs for us to rest our pedals – although we try to stop at them all, the total number of stops is a fluid evaluation of the fun had at each stop.
o We will have lunch at either pub stop 3 or 4, depending on the hunger level of the group.
o The ANNUAL GROUP PICTURE will be taken in front of the lake at our favorite stop.
o We end the day c.6:30p at a restaurant for dinner and chuckles of the day’s events.
NOT FOND OF BIKING BUT STILL WANT TO HAVE FUN ? ? NOT TO WORRY!!!
There are lots of ways you can still join this group:
1) Bring your motorcycle --- leather is just as fun as lycra!
2) Rent a moped!! (if you can find one, let me know and I’ll help promote it to others for you!)
3) Drive it!! If you think you can offer “sag” assistance to your biking buddies in the unlikely event that something unexpected happens, you’re pretty much guaranteed that someone will buy you a beverage of your choice out of gratitude!!
