This is actually the 32 mile cutoff for an old BCP Valley Forge Ride. (An older version made riders ford Mill Creek itself through the stream and up a steep hill. But we'll do the newer version.) We'll turn left where Youngsford Road begins to stay on Williamson Road and wind our way up a couple of more hills to Old Gulph Road and an exhilarating downhill to Matsonford Road, which will take us into Conshohocken and lunch at the Great American Pub. We'll return via River Road. (This ride has several long, steep hills. Not for beginners.) I will cancel by 9 AM for rain. Or call or text me if you are unsure. If I don't cancel, the ride is on. Cue sheets will not be available.
