11:00 AM: Frank's Galena/Dubuque Weekend Aug 18 -20
Galena Weekend Ride
Friday let’s start at Blanding's Landing parking lot at 11:00 AM and ride to lunch. There will be some changes in routes on Friday depending on where we decide to have lunch, but we will fit all the scenic roads in on the route map. Short distance of gravel road will be on the route. For all who are in the Galena area Friday around 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM I will have a Brat dinner at my cottage near Friday's starting point. All are welcome.
Saturday we will start at the Galena Recreational Park at 1801 Field Street at 8:00 AM. We will ride to the Fort Elizabeth state park for a short visit with a video and bike ride to the Fort. Then off to the Massbach Winery for a lunch of specialty personal size pizza. Then back to Elizabeth and through Eagle Ridge Resort and back to Galena where we will end. We plan a group dinner at Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub unless the group would like another menu.
Sunday we will start at Galena Recreational Park at 1801 Field Street at 8:00 AM . Will ride up hills and down into valleys on our way to the Sinsinawa Seminary. Then through East Dubuque across the bridge to Dubuque. Traffic is always light on Sunday morning. We will navigate our way through town to the lock and dam and then up to Eagle Point Park for the view of the river. Down to Cat Fish Charly’s for lunch. Then up the north bridge on our way back to Galena for the day. Much to see and hills to climb.
P.S. If riders need a bed to stay in I have 4 beds at my cabin. Things are kind of basic but there will be hot coffee in the morning. I need an early start!
