Join us for a road ride to Sanger Starbucks Sunday, January 14 at 9:30 am!
We'll keep it a friendly A-pace (10-12 mph) and regroup often so it's a great beginner road ride/recovery ride!
New: Join League Cycling Instructor Vanessa for a short Group Cycling and Basic Traffic Skills presentation prior to the ride (9 am) to help you ride out on the road with more confidence! Learn group ride etiquette in addition to essential rules of the road to keep you safe. Then use the Starbucks ride to put what you learned to practice! :)
-A pace (10-12)
Bring some $$ for treats at Starbucks!
