Adventure rides are back for 2017!
These are social rides (not races) on Sundays once a month through winter to enjoy some different
trails and places to ride. Rides will generally be relatively non-technical, start-finish at the same
location, for between 3 hrs up to all day.
Riders will need to be self-sufficient with food, water, spares, etc., however some snacks will be
provided during the ride. Depending on the route, we may stop for coffee along the way or the end
(bring your coffee $$). Hot soup or a pastry afterwards will be provided.
Locations and routes are subject to change depending on the weather. If there’s interest, we can run
