Join Ride-A-Bike and friends in 2021 for our shop group rides! The loose plan for the year is as follows:
- Thursday nights: mountain bike group ride at George Poston Park. 7-8 miles with ~1000 feet of climbing. Meet at the picnic area parking lot trailhead and be ready to ride by 6:30. A helmet is required to participate and you'll need lights during night riding season. This is an intermediate to advanced ride. Must be 18 years old or older unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
- The last Sunday of each month: we'll be doing a group ride in the mountains of western NC. Each month will be a different trail. Check back here for the latest information.
