Did you know that local business, Peak Bikes, leads group ride exploring local parks? Be sure to join them Sunday mornings at 8:30 at Cunningham Park for a fun, social mountain bike ride. They ride the advanced trails, so mountain biking skills are a must. Though they do it at a more intermediate pace.
If you need a bike, you can reserve, in advance, mountain bike rentals with helmets. The ride is weather permitting. Helmets are required. The group meets at the trail head. See you there! Because we ride!
