Glassner Autumn Challenge
The 2017 Glassner Autumn Challenge presented by Max Credit Union will be held Saturday, October 14, 2017.

Pick from your choice of five routes: Nutty Nifty Nines (18 miles), Smell the Roses (30 miles), the Fabulous Fives (55.5 miles), the Mad Metric Century (64 miles), or the Courageous Century (103 miles). We have updated the routes again for 2017 taking out the 3 miles of chipseal that was so disliked and rerouting the 55, 64, and 103 mile routes onto regular pavement. Do you want to experience RADICAL SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY and FUN? The club members of the Montgomery Bicycle Club understand that no one understands the need of a cyclist better than your fellow cyclists. Club members proudly serve as your volunteers for the day to ensure your needs are met!

October 22 (Sun)
Flemington FL
Horse Farm Tours
The Horse Farm Tours start in Flemington on CR 329 (Interstate 75 CR 318 exit). Registration will be open till 9 am. If you want to start with a group, we′ll send you off at 8:30 am. Otherwise, you can start whenever you wish. With 25, 30, and 45 mile routes to choose from, there should be a distance to satisfy everyone in the family. The terrain that you will encounter as you wind through the horse farms is rolling. If you are from the coast, it will be a different challenge than just riding over the odd canal bridge. But many of you will want to make frequent stops to take in the scenery, and perhaps have a conversation with a horse.
