Local Rides & Events

Let's Ride Together

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area as well as related resources. Rides require, at a minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
