Wednesday Night Ride Report

We had four people for the Wednesday night ride. Kevin, Doug, Sarah, and I rode 32 miles. We rode the trail from Elm Grove to Wheeling, then continued up to the Brooke county line. On the return down the river we decided to ride up 1st Street towards North Park. Then we turned onto Mt Wood Road down to National Road and the Indian. We then rode down Wheeling Hill past Fulton, through Woodsdale, where Sarah left us, and down National Road to Elm Grove. Weather was nice, it was cool and clear.

Night Ride RECAP

We will be riding Wednesday night (September 20, 2006) starting at 8pm. Pleasse bring lights, mountain or cross bike, and we may be bundling up because of the weather. We will be passing the Mason Rehab around 8:10PM and Washington Ave trailhead around 8:15-8:20PM. RECAP The ride was nice, but a little cold. Got down to 50 degrees by the end. We rode from Elm Grove to Washington Ave. Washington Ave to National Rd where we took the backstreets through Woodsdale to 88. We rode 88 to Country Club Hill, which is closed to traffic. On the first sharp bend of the hill we pass a woman with a lawn chair and tent telling us that the road is closed. We told her that the reason we were riding the hill was because the road was closed. She looked flustered and we continued riding. We took 88 all the way through Oglebay past the ski lodge and Mull's grocery to GC&P. Down GC&P to Short Creek, out to the river. At the river we took the trail back to town and back through Elm Grove to
