Free Weekly Bike Shop Rides From our Partners
Free Weekly Group rides are run by local bike shops and select Trailnet partners. No SAG vehicles are provided and no rest stops are planned. Each ride is identified as either a “drop ride,” where the pack of riders determines the pace of the ride and slower riders may “drop” off if they don’t keep up; or a “no-drop ride,” where the pace of all riders is accommodated. Individual shop rides are listed under our calendar of events.
