2012 Fall Gravel Tour: The Haymaker

The Haymaker is our first group ride of our Fall Gravel Tour.  We're meeting in Red Wing, MN this Sunday October 7th, at 12pm noon.  We'll meet at the corner of Lehrbach Trail and Golf Links Drive/Bush Street.  Parking will be along Lehrbach road, NOT in the golf course parking lot.  The address for the start is  524 Lehrbach Rd, Redwing MN.

This has been a wonderful ride in year's past, and should be this year as well.  We hope you can join us, and we'll see you Sunday!
