Bring water, snacks, a spare tire, and wear a helmet. We usually ride rain or shine but if the weather is particularly unpleasant, you will receive a cancellation email at 7:45AM on the day of the ride.
The leader will be Anthony Savarese, volunteer for the East Coast Greenway Alliance. For more information, contact me at email@example.com
