This is a bike outing; rain cancels. Helmets are required. While there will be many opportunities to rest and learn along the ride, if you are uncomfortable riding your bicycle above a 10 mph pace over a 30-mile distance, this might not be the right ride for you. Please bring along lunch, snacks, and lots of water to fuel you for the 30-mile ride. There will be opportunities to resupply food and water during the trip. If you are unable to carry enough food and drink for yourself, please contact Adam Garcia to determine extra carrying capacity with other riders.
