June 29th at the Hickory City Park there will be a kids Bike Safety Rodeo starting at 10:00 AM. This is being put on by the Hickory City Parks & Rec along with the Hickory City Police. Please plan to attend as HVC members and support .our cycling community. There will be three separate rides going out at 8:00 AM. An A/B ride, B/C ride, and a D ride. the rides are now posted in our HVC Link My Ride app and the Strava routes are also posted in this message. Here’s more info from Lance Riddile:

I re-routed all 3 rides to appeal to all of our club members.  I’d like to see us all ride out together and of course once we get across 321 N. traffic light riders can choose to amp it up or chill pedal.   

On each of the routes I have the group going up the new River Walk back into the park at Hickory City Park, parking lot.  The activities will be in the parking lot as usual.  We could use some help fitting FREE helmets and lite wrench work on bikes as kids and people bring them to us. As well as bike fitting basics for all.  I’ll have tools there. 

D Route 13.75 miles, Elevation = 727 feet
B/C Route 20 miles, Elevation = 1518 feet
A/B Route 32.22 miles, Elevation  = 2233 feet
