Slow hill climbers are welcome on this ride. We will be working on our climbing the only way we know how, by doing it. This ride is structured to not intimidate the novice hill climber. Since it is an out and back, you can turn around when you have had enough but we will be encouraging you to go all the way. We will be regrouping along the way.
We will make our way up to the top of Council Crest and take a couple of laps around Fairmount before heading back down.
Time: Be ready to ride at 4:00PM sharp. We honor those who arrange their schedule to be on time.

Obey traffic laws and remember you’re a representative of the greater cycling community and should conduct yourself that way on the road. Please represent us well.
All riders must have their rides in good working order and must bring a flat kit & spare tube on all rides. If there is an issue with proper working or lack of equipment you may be asked to sit the ride out. Please ask for help if you are ill equipped prior to the ride. We will try to help!
All riders must be able to change a flat should they have one or have a way to get picked up (AAA, a friend…). There is often but not always someone on the ride who knows how to help you change your tire so plan accordingly.
