Southside/Warrendale Metric Loop: 13/Moderate/63 -- CANCELLED

CANCELLED DUE TO THUNDERSTORMS IN THE FORECAST (We may try to reschedule for a later date in July)

Premier Bicycle Club is assisting the local chapter of the American Diabetes Association get a rider's perspective on this year's Tour de Cure Metric Century route. Chelsea Schaffer from ADA will be on hand to answer any of your questions about this year's event and to provide SAG support for us!

More About this Ride

We are looking for a group of experienced riders to scout the route with us. The group should be representative of cyclists that would sign up to participate in a metric century course. We've driven the route several times with Chelsea and made some adjustments to the original draft route, but as you know, being on a bike is going to be very different.

For our purposes we have 2 rest stops planned along the route. One at Blueberry Hill Park (MP 18.9) and North Park (MP 41.1). Both locations have public restrooms.

This ride has about 3994 ft of climbing (roughly 63.5 ft/mile) according to Ride with GPS.

Who is this ride for?

  • If you have gotten in some good training this Spring and are absolutely ready for a challenging ride.
  • If you were thinking about participating with the PBC team for Tour de Cure and were planning to take on the Metric Century.

  • This scouting ride is not for a rider who has not done a metric century before.

    Post-ride

    Plan for lunch after the ride. There are a couple of great options on the SouthSide for us to choose from, including Over the Bar (OTB), Double Wide Grill, and The Zenith.

    This ride may cancel if rain is forecast.
