Friday Bike Rides

All rides start at Outdoor Pursuits on Fridays at 4PM. It is free to use our bikes, but you must register in advance for the ride in order to guarantee equipment. We have 10 bikes available. Helmets and locks will be provided for everyone. Rides will be set at an easy to moderate pace and all routes will be under eight miles of riding.
