COLONIAL PARK-During the winter you can switch start point from Howe Athletic Parking Lot to Colonial Park Lot C.  All porta johns were removed from Howe for the winter while Lot C has heated bathrooms.  Be sure to include this message in your ride.  Cue sheets will not be changed for this winter move but I figure you can work it out.

As of yesterday, Canal Rd between Blackwell Mills and Jacques is still closed at 6 Mile Run.  You have 3 options to get around the closure:

  1. River Rd from Blackwell Mills to Griggstown. Traffic and no bike lane.
  2. Blackwell Mills to Middlebush to Jacques.  Adds mileage and Middlebush has traffic and no bike lane.
  3. Yesterday we chose the hardpacked gravel towpath from Blackwells Mills to Griggstown.  There is a very short section that you should walk.  Yesterday we had no issues on the towpath and no rider fell in the canal.

SAFETY-During your winter rides be sure to include caution of black ice, especially in shady areas.

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving,
