9:00 AM

The ride is about 16 miles round-trip, mostly on the W&OD Trail, with occasional excursions on city streets to visit sites of historic significance. 

Please arrive a little early so you have time to read and sign the liability waiver and get your bike ready to go promptly at 9:00. 

NOTE!  In case of rain, we will NOT ride.
