Roaming Ride #2

I arrived at Shannon Hills about 30 minutes early for the Roaming Ride. A couple of people were already there, but I expected the windy conditions to keep most folks at home.

Minutes passed and the parking lot started filling up. When we rolled out at 6 PM someone counted 21 riders. Not bad for a windy April evening.

We followed the standard Shannon Hills Thursday evening route. There’s a gradual climb up to Old Randleman Rd, a long mostly downhill stretch that carries you to Steeplechase, and then you’re out of the traffic. Soon you come to one of the best stretches — a stairstep climb up some rolling hills followed by several fast miles along Davis Mill Rd.

After passing through Level Cross (home of Petty Enterprises, if you’re into the NASCAR thing), you head back to Greensboro by way of Pleasant Garden. That’s where the group split; 15 folks took the direct route back to Shannon Hills while six of us tacked on a couple of hilly miles.
