The start location for the Wednesday Morning Ride (WMR) is the west
end of McNamara Park in Genoa Township. The entrance to the park is on Big Walnut Road immediately behind the Genoa Township Fire Station, which is located at the northeast corner of the intersection of SR 3 and Big Walnut Rd. The address of the park is 7049 Big Walnut Rd, Galena, OH 43021. There are restrooms available at the shelter house in the park.
The WMRs will start at 9:00 am and routes will range from 30 – 45 miles (depending on predicted weather conditions). They will typically include a brunch stop at one of our local “fine dining” establishments. Destinations will include Sunbury, Galena, Johnstown, Delaware, Centerburg and New Albany. If the WMR is cancelled for any reason, an email will be sent out from the WBC web site no later than 7:30 am on day of the ride.
A digital version of the route will be sent out through the WBC web site on the evening prior to the ride. A few paper maps will be available at the start of the ride. The WMR is a social ride for experienced “C” pace riders (avg. 12-15 mph). This being a social ride, faster paced riders will be asked to stop occasionally so we can regroup. Slower paced riders are asked to bring a riding buddy. As with all WBC rides, participants must sign in prior to the event and wear a helmet while riding.
WBC Rating: CS/2/30-45 (C pace, social ride/rolling terrain/30-45 miles). Mileage is related to the season and the weather prediction.
