To relive the epic ride in 2010 that celebrated my 50th with an "easy" 50 mile ride on the High Trestle Trail.

I'm not sure we can beat last year's amazing weather, but we ride and enjoy whatever we get.

Starting at 10:00 this year, giving us more time to visit the stops that have grown up along the route.

Why AW Sh*t?

Ankeny to Woodward See High Trestle

AW Sh*t I am 50-something

AW Sh*t it's almost winter

AW Sh*t last half century of the year

AW Sh*t it's 3 months to BRR

AW SH*T let's RIDE!!

(I am taking additional suggestions)

Start at the Ankeny trail head, out to the High Trestle Bridge (and back).

Easy pace, flat terrain, it's for fun.

Multiple potential rest/refreshment stops along the way. How many get used depends on weather and personal interest/need.

Dinner and libations following the ride at a location TBD.

Potential (as needed/wanted/etc) Refreshment Stops:

Ankeny Trail Head (1st Street) - roll out at 10:00.

Rest stop #1/8 - The Oasis (High Trestle Trail rest area) just north of Polk City - it has water, porta-potties and picnic tables with a shelter.

Rest stop #2/7 - Takedown Bar and Grill in Slater/Night Hawk Sports Bar.

Rest stop #3/6 - Flat Tire Lounge/Madrid Trail Head parking lot at the Highway 17 crossing.

Rest stop #4 - High Trestle Bridge.

Rest stop #5 - Cayannes in Woodward

Nobody is required to ride, you can meet us along the route or at one of the rest stops - or provide weather appropriate drinks at the Oasis or the crossing by the bridge.



Just show up and ride.
