This is a rain-or-shine charity ride benefiting the Simpson County Literacy Center. Held in conjunction with the SOKY Earth Day Festival, these newly-established routes in Simpson and Logan Counties feature beautiful country roads with great pavement and rolling hills, with just one or two more difficult hills on the 62 and 46 mile routes.
All proceeds from the ride will benefit the Simpson County Literacy Center, an adult education center in Franklin that “Lifts up lives through learning.” You can learn more about Simpson County Literacy at http://www.scliteracycenter.org/
The routes will be clearly marked with spray paint directions and/or signs. If you wish to view the route maps, you can see each route distance on this page: http://ridewithgps.com/events/Square-to-Square-Ride1
Those who register before April 9 will receive a t-shirt. Folks registering on April 10 or afterward will receive a t-shirt on a first come, first served basis.
We will offer SAG stops about every 10 miles for the 22, 46 and 62 mile routes with food and drinks, and a single stop on the 12 mile route. There will also be a SAG vehicle following the riders for the duration of the ride.
