Description

Party Ride

Distance - 42.5 Approximately

For more than Eighteen 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 Altoona Hawk Heaven Tavern (17th Ave SW and 8th St SW). 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.    CAMPING AT THOMAS MITCHELL PARK IS NOT AN OPTION - FULL

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 17th Ave SW and 8th St SW, 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.  Or you can easily head back to the trailhead from a number of locations along the route. Hope to see you out.
