The River Park Group Rides leave from the Old 421 River Park, out from Lewisville, NC., every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:30 AM. It was hot and very humid on today's ride. We rode a little over 40 miles and averaged just over 16 miles per hour. The distance is typical of these rides, but the speed was slightly lower due to the extreme heat. I rode to and from the rides from my house to get in a few extra miles. The ride home was at about noon and was difficult due to the weather conditions. These folks are great to ride with during the week. You will enjoy this ride if you are comfortable drafting and have ridden anything close to 40 miles before.
