indysteel said:I'm not aware of any races scheduled in Indy that weekend, but I can double check for you. There are a couple of club rides scheduled for the weekend of the 30th, but neither are in Indy. The one on Sunday is probably the hilliest and hardest ride of the year, but it starts about an hour south of downtown. Most everyone I know will be going to that ride. If I hear of any groups riding out of Indy that weekend, I can let you know. Most of the groups I know don't plan more than a week out however.
Thanks for checking that out for me. The Sunday hilly ride sounds fun. I'm considering flying into St. Louis Friday night to do the O'Fallon Grand Prix Saturday, and then driving to Indianapolis.
indysteel said:The Sunday ride is fun if you like short, steep climbs. The longest routes (87 and 100 miles) go into Brown County State Park. Bring 2 bucks with you for admission (but this is otherwise a free ride). There are also 30, 50 and 72 mile routes. The ride is marked and supported.
Let me know if I can provide other info.
It starts at 9 am at Indian Creek High School in Trafalgar. Let me know if I can provide directions. You could otherwise do a search on Mapquest.
More info is also available at cibaride.org under "nonrepeating" rides. I would note that notwithstanding the ride description, the ride leader changes things up every year so you never quite know until the day of exactly where you're going.
