Weekly Group Rides

Recurring Weekly Group Rides (2018 winter schedule)

This is the winter schedule,  rides during the week, brings lights front and rear.  Make sure your daylight blinkies are turned down a notch so not to blind the rider immediately behind you.  We stay together more at night, no zones.

If you know of any other recurring or group rides and you would like for us to post them, please contact webmaster@freewheelers.info  Most up-to-date info is on our Yahoo user group.  Join the club for access.

The Club’s supplemental accident medical insurance covers members in good standing on all Club rides.
