JUST STARTING OUT?
If you are just getting into cycling, want to learn more about the sport, or would like to meet new friends to ride with, then our weekly Mellow Rides are for you. Mellow Rides are designed to be both educational and fun. Each week before the ride a different cycling related topic is presented. Topics range from riding in a group (pace line) to bicycle maintenance and repair. Riding skills are discussed and practiced while out on the ride that follows. The club will also hold at least one weekend distance ride every month specifically for beginners. For more details on the program and to see the ride schedule please visit Tips and FAQ’s.
