Resident or visitor, you are invited to join any of our posted rides.  

To receive our weekly ride schedule via email, please join our YahooGroup using the link on the left of this home page.   The ride schedule is usually sent out on Sundays for the following week. Rides are also posted on the Group Rides page.

Most of our warm weather rides are moderate, no-drop rides - but we also try to offer options for the more casual rider as well as the more agressive 

Club membership is not required; in fact we will be glad to take you along on our favorite routes. (We do require helmets, a waiver, and a safe biking attitude.)

If our posted rides do not meet your schedule, feel free to download some of our most popular rides from the "Cue Sheet" section of this website.
