Bike ride will benefit Hudson Area Library
HUDSON » The Ghostly Gallop Ride, a 15-year-old benefit for the Hudson Area Library, will be held Oct. 1516 with 10-, 25- and 50-mile events.
All rides stick primarily to rural roads, some along the Hudson River, others through farm country. Each route can be downloaded to a cell phone, making rides easy to track and practice sessions a snap.
The 50-mile ride begins at 8:30 a.m., the 25-mile ride starts at 9 a.m., and the 10-mile ride begins at 9:30 a.m. All rides begin at Hudson High School, 208 Harry Howard Ave.
Routes were chosen with an eye to keeping the climbs to a minimum. The longest ride offers the most variation, but all participants should be able to enjoy themselves during the course.
The routes are still being finalized, but current cue sheets, turn by turn, are online at www.GhostlyGallop.info.
Registration for all events can be done on the website www.GhostlyGallop.info.
