CFSOC Bike & Social Outing
Date: Sat. November 14, 2020 – 1:00pm riders; 3:00pm non riders
(Rain date: Sun. 11/15/20 – 1:00pm)
Location: Empie Park – Wilmington
3405 Park Ave, Wilmington, NC 28403
Riders meet by the parking lot adjacent to the softball field.
Non riders meet in the field behind the tennis courts.
Description: We will take a leisurely bike ride along the Wilmington Cross City Trail from Empie Park to Wrightsville Beach. Round trip distance is approx. 16 miles. Riders who prefer not to ride the entire distance can turn around and return to Empie Park at any point in the ride. Ride will begin at 1:15PM.
The terrain is mostly paved trail and side streets, not a difficult ride. You do have to cross College at Randall Pkwy (excellent pedestrian xing). We will also cross Eastwood at Military Cutoff, but again very safe you can walk the bike, if needed.
Upon completion of the ride (approx. 3:00pm) we will meet behind the tennis courts for a socially distanced gathering.
Non riders can stake out a spot in the field behind the tennis courts. It’s a big field and they should be able to pick out a nice spot.
Please bring all the accoutrements you might find useful for an afternoon in the park.
Sundown will be at 5:10pm but should be plenty of ambient light from the courts.
So we can get a head count, please rsvp to Joanie Hoffman at email@example.com.
