Joining is simple and membership is free! We are a friendly group of bicycle enthusiasts! Casual, relaxed rides for fun and recreation all over from the Farmington Valley, Hartford and shoreline area. See great neighborhoods, beautiful scenery and meet great people too! So if you feel it is more than just the bike ride that matters, then this group is for you.
This group is for cyclists who are least 18 years of age, looking for fun, fellowship and fitness. It's not about cool gear or speed - this is all about getting out there and getting some exercise while enjoying yourself and the company of others.
Most of our rides will be on paved rail trails or roads while some rides will be on hard packed stone dust/gravel trails. Your safety is our utmost concern! We require helmets on ALL rides. Head and tail lights are required on all rides ending after sundown. Reflective gear is strongly recommended. Ride organizers will do their best to find and lead safe rides. Each rider must keep their own bike and gear in proper condition, follow all traffic laws and follow safe riding practices.
For more intermediate and advanced rides (ride pace over 12 mph) please join Casual Bikers East. http://www.meetup.com/casual-bikers-east/
