No pre-registration is necessary. You must have your own bicycle, helmet, and headlight. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The store will be open before the ride if you need any last-minute bicycle supplies or repairs (within reason). Parking is limited at the store; we recommend using the Lock 29 Trailhead or Overflow Parking Lot, both located on Mill Street.
