|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Saturday, repeating until March 30, 2019

We’re kicking off the season with a series of rides for every type of cyclist! So get that bike down from the rafters, dust it off and join us for four straight Saturdays as we jumpstart the season.

Each ride starts on a Great Rivers Greenway greenway and has a maximum distance of 25 miles. Shorter distances of 1-15 miles are also available. As opposed to our traditional BFC rides, the Dust Off rides are all group rides and led by an experienced rider. After each ride we will reconvene at a nearby watering hole to discuss our ride and other major world events.
