Throughout the year we host many different rides.  Some of the rides we will post events on Facebook and provide extra details there.  Other rides we do not post on Facebook - those rides require a certain pace to maintain throughout the ride and we ask that you call and coordinate with us on joining.  We have recurring rides that happen at the same time every week and we also do special events.  Special events we will always create a Facebook event and promote through our website and newsletter.
