Hub Grub Bicycle Ride Route Good To Go

I did a test run of the Hub Ride course and it's a little bit of everything -- great restaurants, a few surprise twists to the route and hopefully a lot of fun on May 22 from 3-6 PM.

The whole route is about 7.5 miles. Here's the line-up. The restuarant stops are approximate times.
