Introducing the "EZ Roller Ride"

By Corinth Ford -- Would you like to get out on your bike for fun as well as exercise?  Are you interested in a relaxing group ride to a fun destination? This ride may be for you!

The EZ Rollers meet on the third Sunday of every month at Saxbys Coffee on Amstel Avenue. All who are interested will meet at 10:00 a.m. for coffee or tea, with a planned departure time of 10:30.

The route out to Milburn Orchards
Destinations will vary, depending on rider suggestion. Among the favorites this time of year is Milburn Orchards in Cecil County MD, (just 6.5 miles from Saxbys) where we'll take a rest stop for warm apple cider donuts. Distances will vary, but expect somewhere between 10 and 20 miles, depending on weather and how everyone feels.

Special note: This ride does not have a dedicated leader; everyone rides at their own risk. I am coordinating the ride by asking everyone who is interested to contact me, so I can start an email list. With this list, I will provide monthly reminders about the ride. Everyone will meet at Saxbys 1/2 hour before we leave, and it's expected that sub-groups will form based on desired pace. The route will be easy to follow; favoring marked bike paths where possible.

This is an entirely new concept for group riding in the Newark area, where bicyclists of all abilities can meet, make friends, and at least start off together in a group setting. Email Corinth Ford at: cford@amerihealthcaritas.com to express your interest and get added to the e-mail list for the EZ Roller Ride today!
