<b>Ride to the Capitol</b><br><br><br><br>
Roswell will be 21 miles one-way, very hilly, and ridden at a 12 MPH pace. The Roswell route starts at <b>Roswell City Hall.</b><br>
Estimated departure time from Roswell is <b>9:45 a.m.</b><br><br>
*Novice and family (and even intermediate) cyclists are encouraged to ride the Decatur route or join the Roswell route closer to downtown Atlanta.<br><br><br><br><br><i>So, I was thinking about signing up. Then I saw the warning... Novice and intermediate cyclists are not encouraged... Ahh! I don't know what to do.</i><br><br><br><br>
The route says 21 miles at 12 mph pace, which will not be a problem no matter how hilly it is... since I happen to know there are no mountains between Roswell and Atlanta. Just a lot of hills.<br><br>
But I'm definitely an intermediate cyclist AT BEST. Especially right now when I'm not in peak shape.<br><br>
What to do, what to do....

If you can keep that pace, I think you are fine.<br><br>
They probably want to keep out people who ride slowly, for leisure, and kids. They probably don't want to have to worry about dropping people.

Why is cycling not ok for pregnant ladies? Because you might fall? I hadn't thought of that.

My doc said it's just fine if I bicycled before, but when my balance starts to suffer 3rd trimester to move indoors just to be safe to avoid a fall.

That's what I was wondering.<br><br>
The pace is no problem in the slightest. But the wording of the warning concerned me.
