Lance Riddile: 
Lake Hickory Trails Night Ride

Hello Cycling Enthusiasts,  unfortunately, due to all the rain we’ve experienced over the past 2 days the trails will be closed for this Friday’s event.

On a good note we have a make-up date of Friday, December 4th, 6:00pm to 10:00pm. 

Our flyer has a convenient QR code you can use your camera setting on, as well.

Let me know if you are interested in coming out that night.  If so, I need to get you information on parking and set up. 

I will be back out to the shops and Rotary-Geitner Park with the updated flyers.  In addition, I’ll have trail maps available (see attached).
