July Community Bike Rides!

It’s July and summer is in full swing! Picnics, cold drinks in the hot sun with good friends, and of course, bike rides are the things that summer is made of! We have 5 community bike rides planned with our Ambassadors and Staff to show you a great time around town this month.


All group rides are FREE and open to the public. All of the routes are designed to fit all different rider “levels” so you’ll have fun if you’re an avid cyclist or just getting back on a back for the first time in years. No one gets left behind!


If you want to join us, please RSVP via this link.
