The route up to Madden is on lightly used secondary roads. There is one long hill each on the out bound and inbound sections, but most are short and easily managed.
An early start will improve our chances of sighting wildlife and it also means we are out during the part of the day when winds are usually light. It may be cool when we start but what a great way to start the day!
Starting from the Shane Homes YMCA, we will ride in a counter clockwise direction. See map for details. The intent is to complete the route and be back at the YMCA by noon. The golf course at Madden is open for those who wish to stop. Otherwise take as many breaks as you wish or eat and drink on the fly.
I always bring a camera and a small set of binoculars just in case.....
Location: Parking Lot; Shane Homes YMCA. Royal Oak/Rocky Ridge NW
