Rides and Events

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area.

PLEASE CLICK LINK FOR EACH RIDE TO RSVP! This helps us greatly in our planning.

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!

Upcoming Cycling Events

Some of these events require fund-raising to benefit charitable organizations. Call for further information.
