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 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!
Join us on one of these fun rides. Whether you are new to cycling or an old pro, we would love to have you in our group. Like us on Facebook and check our events page to see when we are riding. Also, join our club on Strava to stay up to date on our rides and events.
Some of these events require fund-raising to benefit charitable organizations. Call for further information.
