Blackbird, Bombay & Leipsic Ride

Nuts & Bolts

The forecast this Sunday morning for the Smyrna, DE area on Wednesday seems to indicate a very nice day for our next Out of Area ride. With temperatures in the high 70’s to low 80’s under partly cloudy skies, I am looking forward to a nice ride with as many of you who can make it.

For those living in the Lewes/Rehoboth area we will meet in the NW corner of the Lowes (Lewes) parking lot and car pool from there. We will depart from Lewes at 7:20 AM. For those of you who will meet us in Smyrna – we will meet near the Acme Market 236 E. Glenwood Ave. Smyrna, at 9:00 AM.

The ride distance is 56.9 miles but can/could be shortened – if needed – or some riders might choose to ride a slightly shorter distance and still see much of the ‘good’ stuff. Lunch is planned for Sambo’s Tavern 283 Front Street in Leipsic. DE. Their telephone number is 302-674-9724.

This ride try’s to pass as many ponds, lakes, estuaries, forests and wildlife areas as I could fit in and still get us home at a reasonable time. I would hope that we would be back here by about 3:30 to 4 PM but there are many variables – most of them unknown at this time.

I will have cue sheets with me and will post the ridewithgps down loadable route onto the email that this notice is sent out on.

So, let’s have a safe and sane ride – the cops are not chasing us. I would like to pace to be in the 14 ½ to 15 ½ mph speed range with safe distances between riders. Ride 2 abreast only where there is a wide shoulder, OR, it is safe to do so. Be courteous to other vehicles – they are bigger than we are.

Let’s get out there and ride!!!!! Jack Boettger
