One of KC's favorite August traditions is back
with some fresh changes!
Summer Breeze is the last big ride of summer so don't miss it!
We have lots of exciting, primo road to share with you.
Low traffic, scenic countryside, you and your friends, a great post-ride
party at New Longview = awesomeness on a beautiful summer day!
Parking at Longview Community College (registration/check-in will be
across the street in New Longview behind Gusto Coffee Bistro — see below for details!)
Sunday, August 27, 2017. Heading south and then to the east and
back in a series of picturesque loops, this is an even more engaging Summer Breeze.
Take in the beautiful countryside, enjoy the sunflowers
and Queen Anne's Lace, the birdsong and the delicate flaps
of grasshopper wings as you pedal up and down gentle rollers.
The CKC SAGs will be as always "just what you needed" and
hungry riders will be met at the end of the ride with a tasty
lunch and entertainment that will have you jammin’
while you enjoy a delicious craft beer.
Summer Breeze is a family-friendly event not to be missed!
Choose from 100 miles, 70 miles, 50 miles, and a relaxed 30-mile tour.
Or a family-oriented 5-mile cruise!
NEW: 5-mile Family Route
& FREE Road Safety Clinic!
Kids ride FREE!
