Geezer Ride Schedule:  May 13th, 2017- Prairie Grove Park, Waterloo, IA- Geezer Ride 6.0- The Broad Street Brewery edition. The details on  the route and more are figured out in my blog post for Tuesday May 9th. (Link), but figure on a 12:00 noon start from Prairie Grove Park at the South end of  4th where it intersects with Shaulis Road. Meet in the gravel parking lot there and we will get started at Noon, Saturday the 13th. Estimated time for the ride to end is around 6:00pm. Distance is 43 miles.

Stay tuned on a Fall date, which will likely be announced this Summer.

  2. Interested in possibly doing this, except it's the day after my 10th wedding anniversary so scheduling is a bit tricky...

    I have a Surly Ogre with J-Bars and 35mm Schwalbe Marathons. I can change over the Marathons to a 40mm XPLOR or Knard or the like, but my drive train is a Shimano hub Alfine 8. How would that hold up for the ride, assuming I can make it?

  3. @mkellis: I would think that you could get by on your 35's but if there is any fresh gravel, you'll be at a slight disadvantage. Otherwise, it shouldn't be that big a deal.

  4. I'm currently planning on attending. Looks like Big Woods Lake Campground is conveniently connected by bike path, so I'll plan to camp there and ride over to the start.

    1. Never mind. I'm out. Car has been declared "non-trustworthy" by the mechanic, and the needed parts no longer produced.

  5. Will be there thanks! Have been wanting to partake in this ride, and this is the first date that has not interfered with my granddaughter birthday party in the spring or grandson's in the fall.
