Overall Difficulty:

The Frankfort Crew Rides for September will be primarily on ""Moderate"" to ""Strenuous"" routes as everyone has their legs and lungs in good shape from riding all year.  Most groups will ride a paceline and pace groups will stay together, except on steeper climbs, and then there will be regrouping, typically soon after the climbs.  The ride leaders will sweep each group and no one will be left behind.

Details
For September, the Frankfort Crew is back at the ride start location we used to start the season.  We will be departing from the parking lot just east of Rebecca Ruth Candy on US60/Versailles Road, east of Frankfort.  We will again be riding to fun and exotic locales such as Millville, Versailles, Clifton, Jett, Duckers Station, and so on.
 
We will try to post the routes to the BCC Facebook Group page each week, and we will post weather cancellations there, as well.
