Local Bicycle Rides
Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. Our night rides require suitable lights front and rear. 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. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
Our Weekly bicycle rides require a safe operating bicycle, helmet and rear flashing light (Daytime visible). Our night rides require a front and rear light as well. Proper nutrition, hydration, and flat changing items are highly recommended.
