Aug 4 - Something a Little Different

We are doing a 16 km road course loop just south of Highway 22X. It is on quiet rural roads and each lap has 1000 feet of climbing, some of the hills are really steep. The best part - 1 mile of gravel, uphill! I'm thinking 2 or 3 laps for the A and B and one lap for the C group. The C group will avoid the gravel section.

Make sure your bike is in good condition, the downhills are fast.

The gravel section is just north of Township Road 220 on the map and cuts across to shorten the loop a little. The start/finish is same place as the hillclimb in May and some of the loop is on Road to Nepal, but the best stuff is west of there on the quiet roads. I will run the loop clockwise with all right turns.

As for parking - Highway 22X and 37th Street is ok, also there is a little parking near the start/finish. Or ride from town if you can. The start/finish is shown on the map. Go south on 37th Street till you hit Township Road 221, take a right and go past Highway 773 (Road to Nepal) about 1 km. I'll need 2 or 3 volunteers as well.
