After Labor Day, sunset arrives progressively earlier in the evening, so our daylight window to complete the ride becomes less than 2 hours.
To compensate, shortcuts allow slower riders adequate time to complete the loop before sunset.
Speed class C riders (12-15 mph average) should take the 6-mile shortcut on Manning Rd. from Little Twin Rd. east to Soldiers Home Rd., then turn right (south). NOTE: rough pavement in Shady areas on Manning Rd!
Speed class B riders (15-18 mph average) should take the 2- or 3-mile shortcut, depending on whether they are riding the loop in the clockwise or counter-clockwise direction.
If riding clockwise, take the 2-mile shortcut. Turn right from Venus Rd. onto Farmersville West Carrollton Rd, ride east. After crossing OH-4 at the traffic light and traversing the culvert, turn right (south) onto Union/Bear Creek Rd.
2-3 mile (10-15 minute) shortcuts from early to mid September.
If riding counter-clockwise, continue east to the end of Farmington Rd. after crossing Jamaica Rd., then turn left (north) onto Chautauqua Rd.
Riders who choose not to take a shortcut and ride after dark MUST have operating front and rear lights!
