The Loopie WBL Excuse to Eat Ride
DATE AND TIME OF RIDE: Sunday June 26, 2022. Ride briefing at 8:45 AM. Ride departs at 9:00 AM.
HOSTS: John and Helen Mattsen
DISTANCE: 20 miles
START LOCATION: US Bank 4700 Clark Ave, White Bear Lake, MN 55110 We have written permission to park in the US Bank parking lot.
RIDE DESCRIPTION AND DIFFICULTY: This scenic ride begins at US Bank in White Bear Lake, loops around to the west, and ends at the Washington Square Restaurant in White Bear lake. There are a few gradual climb hills. But nothing serious....nothing that would (should) tempt you to drop your gearing into the smallest sprocket. I guess that I would characterize the ride as being upper end easy or lower end moderate.
LUNCH: The game plan is to arrive at Washington Square Restaurant https://www.washingtonsquareonline.net/ by 11:30 AM. We need to go there directly from the ride without stopping at the vehicles first, so that our readiness to eat time will be predictable. I'm going to have to make a reservation for this to work. Outside patio dining. You can keep you bike in sight.
OH WHY? There is a critical quarter mile stretch of road that will be closed for construction from June 20-24. If they finish by the 24th, no problem. If not, it could end the ride!
