Bike Rides

Bike Rides

Bike Rides are easy-to-moderate one-day outings for members who would like to try cycling with a friendly, non-competitive group. These rides are moderately paced on generally flat or rolling, well-maintained bike trails or country roads. Generally, they will be from 10 AM to 2 PM, and average from 15 to 25 miles.

Each participant must bring a bike in good working order and must wear a standard biking helmet that fits.
