Prior to our shift to Facebook, the e-group was used to assist in scheduling training rides, and also to communicate about organized races and tours. You are welcome to join in for a ride--just show up at the appointed time/location and introduce yourself--but consider our ride descriptions above: we are a fairly aggressive bunch!

Note that we do expect all riders to wear a helmet, dress prepared for the weather, have a well-maintained bike, and carry rudimentary tools (spare tube, patch kit, pump, money, etc.). New riders: please ride at the back of the group until you get comfortable with group dynamics. Remember, you are responsible for your safety!
