More Updated Maps

Posted on Apriil 13, 2014

Update 4/16: The Bertrand Township Hall map was updated again on 4/16 to correct a cue sheet error.

The Chris has updated two more maps. The Wednesday Bertrand Township Hall map has been modified to eliminate Gardner Road due to some stretches of shoulder-to-shoulder potholes (as last Wednesday's riders can attest). The Wednesday Northpoint map has been updated to correct a cue sheet error on the 36 mile route.

Spring Road Cleanup

Road Clean-Up

We had great turnout (15 MBA'ers) for the cleanup of our adopted road (Redfield Street between Conrad and Brush) on Saturday, April 12th. The weather was cooperative too - it was 57 degrees and very comfortable for a "walk". The team collected over 25 bags of trash in about an hour of effort. Thanks to all who came out and helped.

Updated Maps

Posted on Apriil 7, 2014


Chris has updated three of our maps. The two Sumnerville maps have been updated to reflect the new start location (Arthur Dodd Memorial Park). The Sumnerville Northwest map has also been updated to route around a road that has devolved from chip and seal to dirt.

The Madeline Betrand map is now the appropriate map for both the Kick-Off and Summer Solstice rides. Based on rider feedback Chris has also added two relatively flat options (15 and 20 miles). The other two options will continue to be the hilly 20 and 29 mile routes.
