Perhaps you know we’ve had a growing Facebook presence for a while. Just look for Springbikeclub. Members should have received an invite to our new Private Springbike page. It will mirror somewhat the old page but be a more controlled version where members can participate in a more controlled environment. If you get on Facebook and search for Springbike, you will find both pages. The Private page is “Springbike” while the older public page is “Springbike Bicycle Club.”
We’ve had a web page for route planning with maps for a long time (hidden under
the Special Interest Tab above), but Ozark Greenways has put up a new web site, LetsGoSmart.org that really does have great up-to-date information.
Go to our Rides Archives Page. . here you’ll find the maps, cue sheets, and .gpx files. We can’t say that the road markings are all still there but you will have the cue sheets and maps.
