WEEKLY GROUP RIDES
Join us on one of our Saturday morning group rides. They are very popular with the local cycling community and the regulars range in ability from racers to enthusiasts out for a fun ride.
If you have never ridden in a large group before, it can be intimidating. If you need some pointers or additional assistance, we will be glad to help. Our goal is to make your ride as enjoyable as possible.

WHAT YOU NEED
Rides require an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We also 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 although we do ride in the heat. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there - and have fun!
RIDE AND EVENT DISCLAIMER
Our goal is to make every ride as enjoyable and safe as possible. However, we cannot guarantee anybody’s safety. We rely on all riders to use proper riding techniques and if you are unsure of proper etiquette or proper technique please ask. We are here to help. There are unknown and unforeseen potential hazards in every ride so we do expect all riders to pay attention and take reasonable precautions. Helmets are required. If you choose to listen to music during rides we request you only use the headset in the right ear and keep the headset out of the left ear. Communication is essential during all rides and having the ability to hear is a part of your responsibility to others. Please also ride within your limitations. We are not racing the Tour de France. If we see that you are not riding within your limitations or are becoming a hazard to others we will bring this to your attentionWe do this for your and everybody’s safety.
Also, it is everybody’s responsibility to follow all traffic laws. We are not lemmings. Just because somebody does something foolish does not mean you need to follow. Use your head and enjoy your ride.
WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY ACCIDENT OR INJURY THAT OCCURS ON OUR RIDE. EVERY PERSON IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS AROUND THEM.
