Are there any group rides at Poto, or can any of you recommend certain loops, etc? I might want to do 1/2 to start, and see how I do.
Or, are any of you experts willing to ride slow and easy one day so you can show the newbies around?
If you ride and take the shortcut, you will end up at Sandhill Road, which is the road that you come in on. Take a left when you come to the road, and you will end up in the parking lot where you started. It's just about 11.5 miles if you do that. I don't consider that to be a normal 11.5 miles though. It's pretty rough.
Actually the road is called Silverhill road after the nearby lake, although with all the sand this year maybe we should change it.
If you ride the Poto and take the short cut after the sandpit you get about 14.5 miles. To get 11.5 you would also have to take the right turn about a mile in that takes you past the stone chimney.
Thanks for the correction. I got a little confused. That is the route that we rode. I remember the stone chimney.
