There will be stops at each of our two prospective regroup spots.
These small group rides are a great way to meet new people, catch up with old friends, or just get out for a social ride. While you’re pedaling, we’ll count on you to help us keep an eye out for potential route hazards. Your feedback will help us adjust the route and keep all of Bike Party safe!
Things to watch out for:
– road or bike lane construction
– hazardous railroad crossings
