Good information

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at 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 committment to ride as a safe, sane member of the group. As many rides are subject to weather, it's a good idea to also confirm dates, time and any specific requirements. We'll see you out there having fun!
