Woodys River Roo at 14 to 16 Mph

Jim Wheeler's Sunday Rides at a 14 to 16 Mph pace

Jims 14-16 mph ride will leave from Woody’s River Roo Restaurant parking lot at 9:00
To get there, take I-75 to Highway 301, Exit 224, and go to the first traffic light, then turn right and right again to Woody’s on the river (Woody's River Roo Pub & Grill 5717 18th St E Ellenton). 
This is the second attempt at this NEW RIDE, so please be patient with me if I make a wrong turn (or two) because I’m still unsure how to navigate the last couple of blocks from Manatee Avenue to the Riverwalk, and then we will will have to find how to access the new walkway across the Green Bridge (don’t worry, we’ll make it).  This ride takes us 30.1 miles around the Manatee River, sticking close to the water wherever possible. 
For a downloadable ride map, go to
I have chosen this mostly E/W ride because of a forecast cool N wind.
LUNCH: The River Roo, of course… everybody loves to eat there and excellent choice of draft beers. Can’t ride? Then just come and eat with us!
