Details:

Our weekly foray into the Red River Gorge in the easier direction, counterclockwise. Restrooms are available at trailheads throughout the Gorge. Groups will decide to do the classic 35 miles or add the additional 11 miles on the now paved North Fork Road extension which is flat and fast along Red River. Multiple paces, but all regroup at Sky Bridge for the descent. Enjoy the spring wildflowers at their peak and there's this legendary pizza place across the road from our start/finish for post-ride gathering if you are interested.
