We stick together and ride at a friendly, social pace between 5 and 10 mph. Leave your race kit at home! PLEASE BRING: a helmet and a reusable coffee mug. You may also want a lock to secure your bike once we arrive. Dress for the weather. This ride typically will roll rain or shine (or snow). A NOTE REGARDING PARKING: Out of courtesy to the neighboring businesses, we ask that ride participants who arrive by car use the ample street parking available and refrain from parking in the lot behind Perennial Cycle.
