We ride every Wednesday evening year round. Our rides cover a variety of routes, usually around 20-25 miles with 1000’ to 1500’ of climbing. Some of our past rides have been to the north, south and east as well as nearby.
The ride is often modified, but rarely canceled for rain. On the rare evenings with the temperature below freezing, the ride will be canceled. Riding in the dark and ice rarely go well together.
Meet at 6:15 at Gasworks for a 6:30 departure.
After the ride we typically meet for dinner and drink, most frequently at the Red Door in Fremont.
