Labor Day Ride

Some of you have met Lewis Smith on some of our Wednesday Group Road Rides.  Lewis is doing "Ride the West", 400+ mile trek around Western North Carolina, setting goal to raise $50,000 to help boys and girls in the care of Baptist Children's Homes.  On Monday, September 1st he begins his final stage of his bicycle ride with final destination in Clyde on September 4th at the Baptist Children's Homes West Area Conference. 
In support of his journey, we are having a bicycle ride from the bike shop on Monday at 9am to ride with Lewis as he begins his final stage of his ride.  The route will go up and over Cowee Mtn and then we will stop at the Exxon station over near Dillsboro.  We can decide if we want to just come back over Cowee Mtn or we can loop around 107, to Tilley Creek and back up and over the mountain (this would be almost 60 miles and quite of abit of climbing), so we'll decide the morning of the ride depending upon who wants to do what.  This would be a good preparation ride for the Tour de Franklin coming up in October.
