Save The Date

3rd Annual Super Bowl Sunday
Emerald Necklace Epic

When: Sunday February 4th. Ride starts promptly at 8:00am. Feel free to ride the entire route or join us for a portion of the ride. Call my cell (216-256-4285) on day of ride to meet up with the group along the way.

Start Place: Ride will start promptly at 8:00 am in Brecksville at Station Street Parking Lot located off Riverview just south of SR 82. We will be traveling the route counter clockwise.

Distance: 98 miles (+-)

Route: We will be traveling the route counter clockwise. The fourteen reservations of Cleveland Metroparks consist of over 20,000 acres of various landscapes and attractions for visitors to enjoy. The Park District is commonly referred to as the "Emerald Necklace" because the reservations encircle the city of Cleveland. (See attached map).

What to Bring:

1. Your bicycle (road bike, mtb, cyclocross, unicycle, your choice).
2. Fenders are a good idea if the roads are wet.
3. Spare tube and tools to fix any mechanicals.
4. A cell phone so someone can pick you up if you have a mechanical or if you bonk.
5. Money for food and water.

Support: None. This is an UN-SUPPORTED ride. There are no organized food stops and no sag wagon. Your only source for food and water is what you bring and what you can buy from gas stations, convenient stores, etc. You should plan to carry ALL necessary equipment/tools for bike mechanicals that may arise

Special Notes: This event will take place no matter the weather conditions, unless there is lightening. The pace will be brisk because we can’t take all day. If the weather is really bad and the pace is slow, you can always reroute or call your mama for a pick up.

See you there.
