On Saturday, 5 May, Corinth Cycling will return en masse to Saint Jo, TX for the first time since Scotty’s fabled Birthday Brr-thday Blowout of many winters ago. We’ll ride the hilly 65-mile route identified as “St. Jo Loop” on the Ride Maps page of this website, then limp over to the DQ for unhealthy food and other forms of cultural immersion. This is a great route, and we’re hoping for a big turnout.
As of today, 26 March, the HDCC team, the A-Group, and the B-Group have committed. We’d love to have the C-Folks on board, too, of course. Groups will roll out from the St. Jo town square (FM 677, S. Main, Howell, and Broad Streets) at short intervals, starting at 8:00 a.m.
In order to save gas and maximize camaraderie, please arrange to carpool or show up at Crownover at 6:30 a.m. ready to share your car or to jump into someone else’s. Saint. Jo is 60.5 miles from the parking lot, and we’re unlikely to hit traffic on the way up. Directions are effortlessly available on line (short version: go to Gainesville and turn left).
In the event of bad weather or the likelihood of same, group leaders (Roland, Mark, and Sam) will decide whether or not to pull the plug for their group. Further announcements will appear on the Forum.
It’ll be a great ride and it’s a lovely time of year. Join us after the ride for bugers at the Saint Jo Dairy Queen.
