Monday Night Mountain Bike Rides

June 2011

Monday night ride series: Riders of all abilities are welcome to join us for our slow-paced, beginner friendly mountain bike ride series throughout the Pioneer Valley and beyond on Monday evenings! Rides typically last one to two hours with frequent stops. Helmets, water, a bike in good working order and some basic bike handling skills are required. You should plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early to get yourself ready for the ride. Rides may be subject to change on short notice (due to weather etc.) - if I know you are coming to a canceled ride I will make sure to let you know!
