2023 Community Rides

Rides on this page are usually scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of every month.

We announce rides on social media a few days before the event on: WhatsApp, Facebook, Strava. Spontaneous rides are also announced on these channels.

Friendly, no-drop, easy-pace rides. No registration — just “Show and Go.” The ride is self-supported, so please bring your own fluids and fuel. We ask that you wear a helmet and carry an ID. Heavy rain cancels. Light rain? We’ll see.
