Where: ride starts in the Cass Park Ithaca Children’s Garden parking lot. Picnic is in the nearby pavilion.
To celebrate our successful 2017 season, the Finger Lakes Cycling Club will be hosting a slow roll, social ride on the Black Diamond Trail (https://blackdiamondtrail.org/) Sunday 10/1  at 2 p.m.., followed by a pizza and potluck picnic in the Cass Park pavilion from 4-7.
Members and non-members, as well as riders of all levels, abilities, and ages are welcome. Join us as we gather, welcome cyclists new to the club, and share stories of the 2017 season. Come for just the ride, the picnic, or both. There will be a raffle, lawn games and more…
To give us an idea how much pizza to order, if possible, please RSVP at:  http://tinyurl.com/ycdyadeg.
Last October we celebrated the opening of the newly surfaced Black Diamond Trail (BDT) Cass-to-Taughannock section. This year, no speeches, just fun. The BDT is pressed cinder, suitable for all types of bikes. Expect a gentle 2-3% incline all the way up. To find the base of the BDT, stand in the Ithaca Children’s Garden (CG) parking lot with your back to the CG front entrance, and look up the hill, and you’ll see the trail. It runs up to the Taughannock Park overlook, about 8.4 miles.
Hope to see you there!
 
If you have questions or would like to help with set up or clean up, please be in touch.
 
best,
