Last week Dale led us due south into the howling winds of Byron. On Saturday at 9am -- to kick off the official Baselayer season -- we'll ride due north for a store stop at the 45th Annual Monticello Deer Festival. Then we'll wolf down a funnel cake and suffer southward. The start will be at Northridge Baptist Church on Gray Hwy just north of downtown Macon (location map at bottom of page). There is a short section of dirt (about a mile) but it's very smooth with no gravel. Hwy 11 is a good stretch of road for practicing rotations. The route length is 69.6 miles. No attack zones or sprints for this one.
