BLT Rides (Bike & Learn Together)
A Casual Bike Ride with Traffic Safety Education
Part learning experience, part coffee jaunt, these rides welcome all riders, but are geared for beginners. If you would like an introduction to road riding, riding in a group, or just a nice morning out with some fun bicyclists, this is a ride for you. The rides are typically 8-10 miles, flat, and we do it at a pace that encourages talking and interaction (somewhere around 8-12 mph average, depending on the group). We talk a lot, stop a lot, and eat or at least bring doughnuts, while getting information about riding in various situations.
