Dan's Ride is now on WEDNESDAYS!!!!

Spend some time with your Hometown Bicycles service tech! Please bring a front and rear light, as we are ending at dusk.
Meet at the shop at 5:45 and we’ll roll promptly at 6:00. We'll ride from Hometown Bicycles, head towards Island Lake, and cover 13+ miles of pavement, dirt trails and gravel roads between 12 - 13 mph average. Our route will continue through the back of Island Lake, we’ll grab a little trail, hop a guardrail and enjoy some gravel (a few hills just for fun!), pop onto some paved roads and then grab another dirt trail back into ILRA. What to expect? There may be a “puddle” or so of sand to maneuver through and a few face slappers on the trails this time of year. Nothing our gravel, adventure or mountain/fat bikes and fun personalities can’t easily handle. Standard road bikes (skinny tires for pavement only) are not appropriate for this ride. All levels of riders are welcome at this pace - NO DROP RIDE. Check back for ride confirmation/changes.
