is not Required
You must sign the ride sheet/waiver to participate in the ride and to earn club points and mileage. There will be a Pre-Ride Meeting 10 minutes before the start of each section of the ride. Please arrive at the starting point early enough to get set up before the pre-ride meeting. Helmets required on all NFBC rides.
Every year we usher in the New Year with the NFBC all-time club favorite, the YOYO ride on January 1.
The 55 & 100 miles routes are available for levels A & B. The 30 miles route (up and down the rail trail) is open to all riders. The 30 mile route will start at the same time as the longer routes.
The 55 miles travels along with the longer routes but heads back at Maccleny via 90 & the rail trail. At Maccleny the 100 mile route heads north to the southern most crossing into Georgia.
Then 100 mile route will take you along some of the nicest and less traveled roads in the beautiful southernmost part of Georgia.
By the way, this ride is called the YOYO ride because on New Years Day we are never sure which stores will be open and there is no sag wagon. You're On Your Own. So bring enough food and drink to sustain you through the ride.
Of course there is water along the rail trail and the Wal-Mart that we pass in MacClenny is always open.
