To Protect Us All, the following Group Ride Rules have been adopted:

1. All riders must pre-register for group rides

2. Masks are required when not riding, including pre-ride briefings and rest stops

3. Riders must maintain a safe distance during group rides

4. Ride Leaders will determine the number of riders allowed on their rides

5. Non-members are welcome but also must pre-register to join group rides

6. Self-paced rides will continue to be offered and posted on the Ride Calendar

To E-Bike, or not to E-bike, that is the question:

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind and to suffer

The hills and lagging behind of outrageous fortune

Or to take help from a motor assist.

To once again be happy upon the seat or to have such happiness removed

For who would bear the whips and scorns of E-bike assists,

Let them know, that is mere jealousy,

For I know of no E-Bikrer who has forsaken their assist

So go forth and be happy and e-bike 

Thank you Shakespeare and Hamlet for this E-Bike soliloquy
