When: Sunday, July 16th
Where: Stockton Lake State Park
Time: 7:30 AM – 7:30 PM

Route: To allow plenty of lake time, our ride will include a mix of highway/Interstate and state roadways. From Lee’s Summit, we will follow MO-291 S to MO-7 S, then MO-83 S and MO-123 S to State Hwy H in Madison Township to the Lake. Our return route will consist of the following: State Hwy H to MO-32 W, then take MO-39 N to State Hwy DD/S 951 in Cedar Township; Continue following State Hwy DD to MO-82 W, then take State Hwy H to MO-52 W in Appleton Township; from there we will take MO-52 W, I-49 N/US-71 N and MO-291 N to MO-150 W in Lee’s Summit. One pit stop is planned each way, at approximately 1.5 hours into the ride, if needed. The State roads are guaranteed to satisfy your desire for curves!
Meet: Plan to meet at the QuikTrip parking lot located at 120 SW M-150 in Lee’s Summit, near 291.
Meet time is 7:30 AM with kickstands up at 7:45 AM. Planned arrival time at the Lake will be 10:30 AM. We will depart there at 4:00 which will put us back to our original meeting place at 6:45 PM. (In the event of a large turnout for this ride, we will meet in the Raintree Price Chopper parking lot across the street.)
Stockton Lake offers beautiful scenery with three hundred miles of unspoiled shoreline and 25000 acres of clean clear water. While there, we can cool off at the gravel swim beach, which offers a restroom and change-house facility, canoe, kayak, jet ski (rental fees apply), and hike. The Lake offers three hiking trails: 0.5 miles, 1.75 miles, 8 miles and one water trail that is just over 6.5 miles via canoe or kayak.
