Bike Month motivates new riders and inspires experienced bicyclists. Nothing is better than celebrating this season by joining people with the same passion in a group ride. Group rides in C-U come in all shapes and sizes. They range from social rides that end at a local ice cream shop to long-distance rides that might take you to parts of your hometown you’ve never explored.
