Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at a minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. Our Facebook page and Meet Up group are great avenues for these updates. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
