Stolen Sunday Ride – Sunny and 56 is a Great December Day!

Wow! What a great route we rode yesterday. We headed South to the by-pass figuring we would ride out West Harpeth to Columbia and our usual roads. But when Tracey said Snowbird Hollow had finally been repaved it was time to modify the ride plan.

Snowbird was as much fun as you would think it should be and when we popped out on Columbia, Jay led a strong group North to Coleman Road and a fine set of hill climbs. They must have really laid it down (up?) as that group beat the other half to the rendevous point at Kitrell Road and Coleman. Brennan and I took turns at the front (it slides mostly downhill) down Coleman to Carters Creek.

After a bit of discussion we settled on a Carl Rd>Southall>MacMillan for the return route. We cruised back on Boyd Mill and after pulling Jay to the front (no really I did) i promptly exploded off the back. We all agreed that it was a terrific route with enough climbs, flats and rollers to make everyone happy. I’m sure this route will make its way into the regular rotation of the Mac’s Harpeth Bikes Sunday Ride Club.

After we settled into our seats at ¬†Mickey Roo’s and caught our breath, the conversation turned to mountain biking and maybe having a SUnday MTB ride. Look for this to be scheduled sometime in late January/early February and we will head for either Bowie in Fairview or Chickasaw in Columbia. Peace-
