The Road Pirates

Description

Party Ride

Distance - 42 miles

For more than thirteen years now, the Pirates have been putting on the best little party ride this side of the big dance. Join us for another adventure and prepare for heat, hills, head-winds, hookers, and hijinks. (Wait, did he just say hills?)

We are tailgating at the Gay Lea Wilson trailhead behind the Brewhouse 25 (64th and SW 8th). It’s a good place to park. This should hasten our typically late departure. Like previous years, our route takes us from Altoona, to Pleasant Hill, over to Runnells, to Mitchellville, then to Bondurant, then back to Altoona. In the past some have set up camp in Thomas Mitchell Park to avoid the drive home.

This is one of the few rides taking you to these great Eastern small towns –these towns, and the beautiful blacktop roads, are worth seeing.

Route

Starting at 10:00 AM at the Gay Lea Wilson trailhead 64th St. & SW 8th Ave. Altoona, IA.
From the trail head, take the bike trail to the Social/Great EscapeBowling in Pleasant Hill for lunch. Then take more trail to the South side, turn East on Parkridge/6th, and highways as you zig-zag the maze of blacktops to Runnells. Then go straight North to Mitchellville.

From there you take the route west to Bondurant, then into Altoona and back to the trail head. (Check out our maps.) Others will be riding from Mitchellville South West to Thomas Mitchell Park to camp for the night. Hope to see you out.
