Haven't ridden your bike in a while? Don't have a fancy bike? Not a "serious cyclist"? Don't have "cycling" clothes? Don't like riding on the road? Looking to get outdoors with the family? If you answered yes to one or more of the questions above this ride is for you. This ride is short (6 miles), flat, (along the Ten Mile River Greenway), and on a paved bike path. It is the first of a series of rides planned for this summer geared to shorter, flatter, and leisurely rides on bike paths around the area. The pace for this ride will be set by the slowest rider, no one will be left behind. Most people could walk the route in 2 hours, so the time allotted will allow for stops to rest muscles unaccustomed to peddling or to handle equipment issues if needed. The ride leader is a bike mechanic and should be able to handle most bike related issues. Bike Path series rides are being planned throughout the summer and will be shorter, flatter and slower than some of our other rides. The ride distance will increase progressively as the time goes on. The hope is to provide cycling opportunities suitable for everyone on any type of bike. Families are welcomed. Please consult the ride leader about children younger that 5 years of age. Smile more, ride a bike! Registrations and waivers are required for each participant regardless of age (parents or guardians may register minors) Helmets are required for the ride. Bring along water and a spare inner tube that fits your tires. Steady rain will cancel this event.
