    Level D: 10mph, 35 miles. Meet at Azalea Garden's formal entrance, behind the Art Museum. The ride leaves at 9:00 am. Daryl's Pastries Inc, 102 N Keswick Ave, Glenside, PA 19038 is a good destination and it is up hill via Midvale Ave to Henry Ave, burning off the donut calories we will devouring at Daryl's Pastries. Best way is to come out and ride. There is a challenging ascent up Midvale Ave toward Henry Ave for a D level ride but with persistence and being in the lowest gear on your bike, the climb is doable. From there, Henry Ave and School House Lane, the terrain is rolling. Just got to do the miles. After a coffee/donut stop at Darryl's, we will head back along the Reading Rail Line, with some quick hills before entering back into the city at the West Oak Lane neighborhood. Then taking Ogontz Ave South through Logan, Nicetown, and Allegheny West to Kelly Dr. You will discover the wondering route of Ogontz Ave. Remember up hill going out, almost down hill all the way back to tha Art Museum. On street roads except for the Kelly Dr Bike Trail. Cue sheets will not be available.
