Rides and Events

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. 

Our weekly group rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, 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. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
