Ride & Event Calendar - We Ride Every Other Week.
Calendar is in reverse order - scroll down to see January rides

All rides begin at 10:30 unless otherwise noted and go most of the day. If we're not there exactly at 10 a.m....wait a while, as our "Tourmaster" is running late, which is more often than not.

Average ride length, including ride to brunch destination: 100-150 miles. Longer rides can be up to 300 miles. Feel free to ride as long as you wish, but do let the tourmaster know if you'll be leaving early, so the ride doesn't have to stop while someone goes and looks for a breakdown machine or other problem.
