We will start and end our ride on Miley Road just across from the entrance to the Charbonneau development. Click the little map symbol next to the location above for directions.

Rider requirements - Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request.
Always bring plenty of water, snacks for energy, a flat repair kit, including a spare tube. A tool kit and small pump is good, but if you don’t have one there is usually someone on a group ride who does (but don’t count on it).
Carry a credit card, cell phone and a little cash to buy refreshments.
