Please be on time for the carpooling. We don't wait for people.

I found a nice map on ridewithgps.com. I would like to try this route out. Thanks for the person who found the route, so we can enjoy it.

Biking distance is nearly 58 km. Elevation: +327 m / -327 m. It is not a beginner ride, but it is quite moderate. We will ride at the relaxing pace of 19-20km/hr. We would like to ride in the group and socialize with each other. If you like to ride fast, this is not a group for you.

I would recommend to have a road bike, which will save you lots of energy. Touring and Hybrid bike is good as well. However, the mountain bike is definitely not recommended.
