Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, 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. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
Join us and other riders on one of these fun rides. Whether you are new to cycling or an old pro, there is a ride that's right for you.
|Every Tuesday||6 PM||Matt Acker's Tuesday Gravel Adventure ride. Fat bikes are of course invited, but cross, gravel, or mountain bikes can do this ride, too! This ride is a two lap format, each lap being about 15 miles in length. The first lap is a reasonable 15-17mph pace with the second being a free for all (as fast as you want to go!) Matt pauses at the end of the first lap to point folks back to the parking lot if one lap is all they want to do. Each week the route is published, so those with the technology can load the ride in to their GPS. This ride takes off at 6pm, so be sure to bring a headlight and a taillight, and as always, helmets are mandatory!||Townsend Park||616.682.2453|
|Thursday||6:30pm||Ladies, join us on Thursdays for group rides! Weather depending, we'll move around to different mountain bike trails in the area, hit some gravel from Seidman Park, or we'll meet at the GRBC Ada location to learn some mechanics if it's raining. :) We'll meet Spring through September, always on Thursdays, always at 6:30pm. Each ride will be a no-drop, beginner friendly ride so you'll never have to ride alone! See you there! Any questions? Feel free to message Jill Martindale, email@example.com||Ada||616.682.2453|
