2018 GONG Ride 29 Mile Route with the Frank Olson Memorial Loop

posted Jul 5, 2018, 8:38 AM by Scott Redd

We at GONG Ride were stunned and saddened to learn of the passing away of GONG Rider, Frank Olson, on June 30, 2018. Frank was a mentor and friendly face to many, and we've always enjoyed banging the gong with him.

In Frank's honor, we have created a new medium distance 29 mile route that will take riders down some of our favorite roads. We will stop around 13 miles for a remembrance of Frank and the adventures he shared with so many of our friends. 

Members of Frank's family will join us at the kickoff of the ride, and at the Good Times Bar in Louisville. Please come and share with us your favorite Frank stories.

Please see http://www.gongride.com/cue-sheet for details about all three 2018 GONG Ride routes.
