Description of the Route!
||All Valkyries start to gather at the Kroger parking lot in Goshen.|
We are all departing Goshen right at 1:00PM sharp! If you find yourself getting there late, then attempt to catch up at one of the posted meeting places (see below). From Goshen, we are going to head North East out of town on CR 22 which will take us up into Middlebury. From there, we will head due West on CR 8 into Bristol
|BRISTOL, IN- Once we get to downtown Bristol, we're going to head North at the intersection of US33 and main street up and over the bridge (by the park) and continue North until we get to US12. If you missed our Goshen 1:00PM start time, you may want to wait for us around this time in Bristol. There is a gas station at the South East corner of the intersection where we will be looking for stragglers!|
|MI 40 x MI 60 - We should arrive at the intersection of these two roads at this time. For those guys wishing to join us from the Michigan Valk group, this is one place you can meet us if it is convenient for you.|
|LAWSON, MI - No planned stops.|
|PAW PAW, MI - No planned stops.|
|MI 40 x MI 43 - We should arrive at the intersection of these two roads and starting bearing West on MI 43 until we arrive in South Haven. Just a few miles on MI 43 is a McDonalds were will we be stopping for a potty break, should anyone need some relief! For those guys wishing to join us from the Michigan Valk group, this is one place you can meet us if it is convenient for you.|
|SOUTH HAVEN, MI - We should be ready to find parking and head over to Clementines for early dinner. They are expecting us, but do not take reservations, so it will take a few minutes to have them setup the tables.|
|DEPART SOUTH HAVEN, MI - For those of you that want to head back to Indiana, or Michigan guys that just want another nice ride, we're going to head out of South Haven and take A2 or MI 63 South into St. Joesph.|
|ST. JOESPH, MI - We are going to head directly South, and stop at a McDonalds or something just for another potty break, and continue to head home. We will essentially take US 131 back into Indiana at 70mph or so to make sure that we get people home safely and before dark.|
|HOME - Wherever you need to split off from the group, just honk your horn, wave, and blast off to your neighborhood.|
|WEB||The web site should have photos posted on the trip within a couple days. If you enjoyed yourself, I would like you to write an email sharing your experience and perspective on the trip and we can include it next to the shot of you and your bike which will be posted on our htt://www.hoosiervalkyries.com website!|
NOTE: All times are approximate. If you intend to meet the group at various points in the ride, please plan to arrive at that point a little bit early.
