Bridge to be closed on Two Taverns Ride

Bridge to be closed on Two Taverns Ride

The bridge on Fairview Fruit Rd is scheduled to be closed for repairs beginning June 16, 2015. This is about half way between Hilltown Rd and US 30. This will affect the longer picnic ride and also, possibly, for Steve Zeldin's ride for next week on the 16th. It should be fine for the Two Taverns ride this Saturday.

Carol,
I propose the following detour for the Picnic Two Taverns Ride instead of doing Fairview Fruit Rd.

* Continue on Hilltown Rd to Left at Flohrs Church Rd.  Cross Rt 30 and then do a Left on Old Rt 30 to a Right back on route at Tillie Town Rd.

* Alternative is to meander along Flohrs Church Rd past Old Rt 30 and then bear Right onto Tillie Town Rd.

Steve,
I think your first option for a detour would be best. I believe that Flohrs Church Rd turns to gravel before it merges with Tillie Town. Perhaps you can do a little exploring when you are out there on Tuesday.

I wondered about Flohrs Church looking at google streetview/satellite.

A more interesting possibility I am considering is doing
Crooked Creek to Seven Stars.  Skips Hilltown and Flohrs Church.

Thanks for informing us about the bridge closure. Two Taverns V.2 has been updated to allow for the bridge closure. Sheet 2 has the detour: Hilltown to Flohrs Church; crosses US 30 to old Rt 30 and then a right turn onto Tillie Town Rd. Adds 1.4 miles. I have also created a separate Ridewithgps TCX file to go with the detour.
Peter Crosby should be able to use the version without the detour for this weekend's ride.

Re: Bridge to be closed on Two Taverns Ride

Ugh.. I stumbled onto this issue on 'The Best Ride Ever' route today. I made my best pirate imitation as I walked the plank across the creek left for the construction workers. I will have to look at the rerouting offered above as an alternative before I post the ride for the club.
