It was this time last year that the Metroparks and the cycling community dedicated a Fix-it Station and bike rack in front of the Visitor’s Center at Wildwood in memory of Ray Squire and his and his wife Pat’s contributions to cycling in Toledo. As part of that ceremony, we dedicated our ride that day to Ray. Deb & I thought it would be a nice idea to repeat that ride again this year and remember Ray.
The weather looks challenging. With temps in the 40’s, and some blustery winds from the SW and W, we’ll need to break out the cool weather gear. The good news is it should be mostly sunny to keep us warm and I’ve packed the first half of the ride with woods for some protection from the wind. Think of it as a warm up for Winter Warrior, a chance to practice your layering skills.
We’ll be starting at 9:00 from Parking Lot 7 at Wildwood (also known as the “Where The Breakfast Ride Starts” lot) for a 40 mile ride loop out west of town, with a snack stop in Metamora before we head back. Pace is expected to be in the 17 mph range. Be there or be square!
