Mellow Monday returns!  We will meet at the original location at the West end of the parking lot by the pavillion up on the BIG hill.  There are restrooms and water at this newer pavillion and the ride briefing will be up by the pavillion.

The original route will be essentially in place with some minor adjustments.  The roads are very good.  Hills are short and sweet for the most part, but we will still maintain an average speed of 12 mph or slightly less for now with the leader at the front checking in to ensure everyone stays together.  There is one really sharp 180 degree corner that we will take very slowly going from the railroad bridge over 694 just south of Grass Lake down to CR E.  The major deviation from the old route starts here also, as we will go up the hill om Cardigan and take West Lake Owasso rather than taking CR E, which also avoids all that construction mess on Lexington Ave.  We will take some of my favorite residential streets over to and around Lake Johanna which adds a few miles to the route, but makes it more interesting and scenic as well for a total of 25 miles, which may be added to over the season.  We will stop at the usual Dairy Queen on Hodgson, even though it is early in the day because it is such a bike friendly location. In any case, we will have fun and be safe.
