1st Club Ride and Meeting
Description: Yay...you have made it through the winter and you are now looking forward to bringing all the hard intense indoor winter training to the outdoors or maybe you fall into the group that has not been on your bike since the last club ride in October of last year? Whichever category you fall into, don't worry this ride will offer something for all riding levels. Traditionally the 1st club ride of the season is at a leisurely pace. We will start the day with a club meeting to bring all up to date on the developments over the winter. After the meeting we will have our group photo before we start a 35 mile ride through West Caldwell, Hanover, Madison & Chatham.
Don't forget to wear your Classic White Kit for the photo op!
