Join us for a quick road ride to kick off Small Business Saturday on Saturday, November 25th!
We'll ride out to Johnny Quik at Shaw/Academy then head out Zediker and over the Riverbend Bumps on our way back to the shop. This ride is 29 miles and is flat the whole way, with the exception of those awesome bumps. :)
John will lead the group at a C pace (16-19), and Vanessa should be good to lead any B-pace riders who want to join the fun! :)
Ride meets at 8 and rolls promptly at 8:15! Please arrive early enough to sign in and hear the route description/pre-ride talk at 8:10.
Please read group rules, as this ride is hosted at no cost, but with mandatory requirements. :)
