Level B-/C+, 13-15 mph, 55 miles. Meet at Norristown Farm Park, parking lot on White Hall Road between Germantown Pike and Sterigere. This parking lot is directly across from the Norristown Area High School on Eagle Drive. . The ride leaves at 9:45 am. Pretty route from Norristown Farm Park to Java's Brewin' Cafe in Limerick/Royersford. In honor of Halloween, we'll take a slight detour through the Farm Park and the campus of Norristown State Hospital to cycle past one or two spooky buildings. We will have flat stretches along the SRT at both the beginning and final segments of this route. On our way out to Limerick, there is an optional quick rest break if needed in Phoenixville at mile 14. Sit-down food stop at the cafe in Limerick at mile 34. On the return, we'll be in Phoenixville again at mile 43, if another quick break is needed. Total climbing is 2630 feet. Rolling hills, but we will stop to regroup as needed. No one dropped, but we will try to maintain 13mph, as advertised.
