03/25/2018 Revised Map 801. TOWPATH TRAIL starting at any Trailhead.
                    Major change in scheduling towpath trail rides. The 801 map name has changed from North From Lake Ave to
                    Towpath Trail and is now the ONLY Towpath Trail map. Formerly Towpath rides could be scheduled from four
                    starting locations: Lake Ave, Pittman Park, Canal Fulton, and Clinton going either north or south. The
                    Towpath maps from these starting locations have been deleted. NOW Towpath Trail rides can be scheduled
                    from ANY of the 50+ Trailheads shown on Map 801. RIDE LEADERS scheduling a Towpath ride should list the
                    Trailhead name in the "Starting Location" column and whether the ride goes north or south from there.
                    In the "Class" column write TRAIL and in the "Map #" column 801. For TRAIL rides the ride leader determines
                    the distance. It is suggested that you start the ride at a trailhead with a restroom. And it is suggested
                    you choose your distance so that the turn-around point is at a trailhead. It is also suggested you provide
                    the address for the trailhead at which you are starting the ride so that Bill Mishler can provide it as a
                    footnote in the ride schedule. Addresses are not necessary for trail rides starting at any of our established
                    road ride starting locations.
03/25/2018 Deleted Maps 804 through 809.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Ride Altitude Gain Data Collection

You will need an altimeter cyclometer or a GPS with barometric altimeter and about 5 min. of time each ride.   We will be averaging all the data on each ride so recording data on the same ride two or more times is helpful!   The more data we collect, the more accurate the results!   Record the total Altitude Gain & any comments.   When you get at least ten rides recorded, give or send them to me.
