"There's a destination a little up the road From the habitations and the towns we know"

Musician Beck might have two turn tables and a microphone, but we have 6 dam reservoirs and brown bag lunch, and you’ll bring your own.

Safety Notes

  • The group moves only as fast as the slowest rider.
  • We will do our best not to drop any member of the group.
  • When on major highways, the group may ride in the slow lane to ensure the group stays together.
  • There is safety in numbers.
  • The routes try to take us on roads less traveled. Some of these roads might be a little rough (in need of repairs).
  • The routes may take us through multiple climates, riders should be prepared for changing weather conditions (temperature changes, wind, etc.).
  • Rain will cancel the ride.
