Sortable collection of Hills R Us routes, by Steve Chapel.

Ride leaders usually pick the route 1–2 days in advance, so please check on Monday and/or Tuesday before the ride for the route announcement. If you'd prefer to receive automatic notifications of updates to this blog (which does NOT include comments added to blog entries), click on the "RSS" icon next to the title of this page. What you need to do after that varies widely depending on your computer and its configuration. It may all be taken care of auto-magically, or you may have to do a bit of work. Just remember that the frequency of updates is pretty low—weekly, sometime from Sunday to Tuesday before the ride, so you could almost as conveniently just visit this blog.

As of June 1, 2016, please do not park in the Shoup parking lot. Park up the hill from Shoup at Lincoln Ave and University Ave to leave space for those—especially parents with children—who use the Park while we are out riding.

    Since last week's edition was canceled by forecast rain, Paul Melville will still lead this week and will do the ride scheduled last week.
  • Wed, February 29, 2012 10:00 AM | Michael Khaw (Administrator)
    Paul Melville leads an encore of this ride.
  • Wed, February 22, 2012 10:00 AM | Michael Khaw (Administrator)
    Because of reports of tacks strewn around on Kings Mountain Road, to avoid this potential hazard, Steve Chapel has changed the route to this.

    [Originally scheduled ride was: Steve Chapel leads an encore of this ride.]
