Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Also, join our Facebook groups, Slipping Gears Cycling Community for last minute updates or changes to routes.
Always follow the direction of group ride leaders. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, nutrition, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too.
Check our Facebook feed to the right or call the shop for the latest group ride information. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
