Today's weather forecast calls for afternoon high temperature of 40 degrees. This is a pretty route from the Jenkintown Whole Foods Market to the giant Whole Foods in Plymouth Meeting, then back. Outbound via Abington, Oreland, and Blue Bell. Return via Plymouth-Whitemarsh, Flourtown, and Glenside. Indoor rest stop for something hot at Whole Foods in Plymouth Meeting at the half-way mark. Total elevation gain 1875 ft. Mostly rolling terrain, no killer climbs. Most of the climbing comes before the rest stop. We should be back to the finish by ~2:30pm. MEETING POINT in Jenkintown: the Whole Foods Market on the Fairway is ~1 mile east of Old York Road/PA-611. Park at the far end of the lot, near the Rydal Park senior apt complex. GENERIC DESCRIPTION: Scenic adventures by bike on most Fridays, throughout the year. Explore pretty, peaceful roads in suburban counties -- Montgomery, Bucks, Chester, etc. Starting points will vary, so that we can cycle through different regions. Please check the daily calendar for details of each Friday's route -- terrain, mileage, rest stops, etc. Cue sheets and on-line route map will be provided for each ride. If weather conditions are not conducive to cycling, this ride may be replaced by a hike/walk (on foot). As long as we are enjoying outdoor physical exercise, and Mother Nature, in the company of friends, we'll have a memorable outing. Cue sheets will be available.
