Ever wonder why we cycle? Because it’s fun! There’s nothing like riding downhill and saying weeeeeee all the way down. But if you’re new to cycling, we get it. We understand that 18 miles might be a little too steep to start. That’s why we are offering the Bike to 30K program!!!!
Each week, you will gradually increase your mileage. This program is designed to help you over time graduate to be a “D” rider while get acclimated to the club and its members.
*Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before the start time of the ride & make sure your bike is in working condition. Helmets are required & each rider assumes their own risk. Please note that Listening devices are not permitted and cyclists should obey all applicable traffic laws.
