Who’s ready to get out their night lights and go for a ride? WE ARE!!!  Our ride leader, Cary, will be leading this ride for your enjoyment. Look for the blue Crosstrek in the parking lot.

After the ride, there is a possibility for a social gathering for eats and brew!

Here is the BETA:

  • Meet in the large paved lot on Rooney Rd (basically across from the big dirtbike park.
  • Meet time is 5:45 pm with wheels down at 6:00 pm
  • Be sure to dress in or bring layers since it will get get cooler as we ride.
  • APPROPRIATE LIGHTS MUST BE ON BIKES AND/OR HELMETS!
  • If you are not a member, a waiver (which can be downloaded from our website) must be signed and returned to us. (remember, you get 2 free intro rides to see if we are a good fit before deciding to join)
  • RSVP is required.

Please RSVP here:

DETAILS:

  • You MUST have a safe helmet no older than 5 years.
  • You MUST have a working bike that has been serviced within the last few months
  • TIRE Pressure should be checked: Good rule of thumb on tire pressure is weight based:
    • For TUBELESS tires: If your weight is between 100 to 120 lbs = 18 to 20 psi
    • Between 125 to 135 lbs = 22 to 25 psi
    • Between 140 to 160lbs = 27 to 32 psi
    • TUBED tires: Add 3 to 5 psi
  • Chains should be lubed (if they haven’t been touched since last winter)
  • BRING WATER – preferably a hydration pack
  • BRING gels, goo, chews, snack to prevent bonking (On day of ride, be sure to be hydrating for most of the day and be sure to have eaten at least 2 – 3 hours before the ride.)
  • Always BRING a wind and/or rain jacket. You just never know if our weather will change while we are out and it’s better to be prepared.
  • Always dress appropriately for the weather. A good rule of thumb is to start your ride out on the cool side and you WILL get warmer as your ride.
