Features: A hot breakfast at either the Methodist Church buffet or Liz's Country Cafe, or lunch at one of several food vendors is included with the fee. Breakfast ends at 10 AM, but the lunch vendors are open all day. There are marked routes, sag van, refreshment stop, and scenic roads. All routes feature gently rolling, picturesque farmland and good roads. The ride is part of the Old Fashion Days Festival. The route is a figure 8 course. All riders start by going northwest out of North Salem. After returning to North Salem and passing the SAG stop, the longer routes continue south of North Salem. These routes include parts of the 45 and 62 mile routes used for the B&O Bicycle Tour in June, so if you've done the B&O ride, but have only done the 25 miler, this is a chance to see what you've been missing.
