One aspect of what we do at Circle City Relief is provide our friends in Indy with fresh produce every Sunday along with other food items like rescued pizza from Little Caesars, bread items from Costco, dessert and bread from Kroger and soup from Park 100 Foods.
The funds generated from this cycling time trial series will be used specifically for that purpose.
Matt Gay, Co-Founder and Executive Director of CCR is an avid cyclist that likes to push himself to the limit, kinda more than every now and again, and has riden and created this very challenging, kinda technical but very fun Cross shaped time trial course in Carmel.
The Cross representing the sacrifice Jesus gave for us so that we can be in right relationship with the Father for those that believe in Him. The cross route has been a time of sacrifice for Matt and moments to reflect on Gods goodness.
This amazing route starts at the Fresh Thyme parking lot up Township Line Rd which turns into Towne Rd after the 465 overpass and takes a right turn onto Main Street. From there you travel through the beautiful residential areas past Spring Mill rd to Illinois where you take a u-turn at the roundabout and head back towards Towne Rd. Once back at Towne Rd turn right and up to 146th street where you will follow the roundabout back down towards Main Street (131st street now) where you take a right. You then take it all the way to a small roundabout at Riverbirch Run and head back to Towne Rd for the last right hand turn to the finish at the Kroger parking lot at 86th street.
The route is just at 20 miles. For the faster cyclist you're looking at about an hour of riding as hard as you can. For the novice you're looking at about 1 hr 15 minutes and for the ultra fast cyclist like Nate Hopf...Well, you're looking at 50-55 minutes.
Please pay attention to all road and traffic laws. Stay to the right. Most, if not all, of these roads are wide and have plenty of room for passing cars.
Have fun riding your bike!
