SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17th, 2017

To commemorate the life of cycling legend, Chris Kegel, we couldn't think of a better way to bring our family and the cycling community together than a "slow roll" bike ride.

This is a casual, no drop, 11 mile bike ride from State Fair Park towards downtown and back using trails and roads safe for cyclists.  After we return to the trail through downtown and hop back on the Hank Aaron, we'll head south off the trail at the 56th street exit and end at Kegel's Inn for a big tent celebration.
