Our Group Rides
  • Unless otherwise indicated, all rides will leave from the ride meeting place at the scheduled time.
  • As a courtesy to all members, it is important to be ready to leave at the departure time.
  • All bikes should be fueled and bladders emptied ahead of time.
  • We plan a variety of rides. Time and money might make it hard to make all events. We hope this variety will give you an opportunity to pick and choose, and at least enjoy some of them.
