This Monday is the first of what will be regular Monday night rides. As mentioned in the announcement earlier last week, these Monday rides will be designed especially for new riders, but all club members are welcome. No hills, speed, just nice slow riding. The ride will be an easy ride throughout town and be about an hour long. If members wish to extend it, they are certainly welcome to do so. Did we emphasize that the ride will be an easy one?  🙂

Start time: 7:00pm
Start Location: The Metro Parking Lot (front parking lot, at the northwest corner)
Ride Leader: Roy Martin

Please comment below if you are planning to ride so that Roy knows how many to expect. Also, mention if you are interested in extending.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Monday Night Novice Rides

These rides are for new members, beginners, and leisurely riders and lead by experienced club members. These are “No Drop” rides which means that nobody will be left behind on their own. They will take place mostly in-town and be approximately an hour long. The distance and pace will be dictated by the those who attend.

The goal is to learn how to ride in a group, how to interact with traffic and get some tips on how to use gears effectively. Experienced club members are encouraged to come out and support new riders in our club.

Novice Rides will take place on Monday nights starting in June. For the month of June the rides will leave from the Northwest corner of The Metro parking lot at the Northumberland Mall at 7:00pm.
