Join us every Tuesday for a quick learning session on various cycling skills, followed by a beginner-friendly ride through the lower valley country roads. Perfect for those who are wanting to learn riding skills, or those wanting to build up to riding longer distances. Progressively longer rides are held on Saturdays and Sundays about every three weeks. Great program to get you ready for the Chile Pepper Challenge! No one is ever left behind! Riders younger than 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
