New Members Ride
Description: New Members & Beginners, this ride is for you. This day is designed with you in mind.
Come out and meet some of the club members and learn the basic ABCs of a bike check. We want to learn about your cycling needs and goals during this hands-on learning exercise on how to care for your bike. After the demonstration we head out for a social ride on this Memorial Day specifically geared for the beginners and/or newer members. The ride is 23 miles and FLAT as a pancake.
If you are looking to advance to the next level or need tips on how to improved your cycling endurance come out and learned a tip or two from some of the more experienced members.
Ladies, you have a question and not ready to ask the men that work at your LBS (local bike shop), take advantage of this opportunity to meet other women in cycling and get those embarrassing or uncomfortable questions answered in person.
Join us for smoothies or other iced beverages after the ride.
