Our Weekly Rides are Back!  

Grab your bike, your helmet, some water and nutrition.  We are back on the road and trails every week.   

We ask participants to have their bike (appropriate for the intended ride i.e road for road ride and MTB for Mountain bike rides) in good working order, bring water and nutrition, and a helmet of course.  We would also suggest you are self sufficient on your bike as well.

Road Rides (Tuesday 6:00pm and Saturday 9:00am):  

We gather at the shop at 6:00 pm Tuesdays,  and Saturdays at 9:00 am.  We ride for about 2-2.5 hours (while light allows).  The average pace is 28-32 kph.   A road bike is definitely required for these rides.

Casual Rides (Tuesday evening 6:00pm):

For those craving a more laid back ride for Hybrid, e-bikes or mountain bikes.  We welcome all level of riders.  We ride the rails to trails and generally will stop more frequently for a variety of reason, including ice cream!

Mountain Bike Rides (Wednesday or Thursday Evenings):

Weekly mountain bike rides are on either Wednesday or Thursday evenings.  This changes depending on the weather.  We visit different trail systems and try to change it up to provide new experiences every week.  A mountain bike in good working order is necessary.  All levels of riders are welcome!  We generally start at 6:00-6:30 pm. 

Women's Ride:

For those who prefer a women's ride on the road, we have two weekly rides.  One ride leaves the shop on Tuesday evenings, and the other on Saturday mornings.  Shelly leads both and is happy to guide you towards which one is best suited to what you want to get out of your ride.  She can be contacted at
