TUESDAY, 8:15AM
Rating: Easy/Beginner
This is an old favorite -- the "Beginner / Intro Ride". This is for new riders or anyone returning to cycling who wants to dip their toe in the CSBG water before tackling any of our other rides. Led by an experienced member, we depart from the Claremont Joslyn Senior Center (660 N. Mountain Ave., Claremont) for a relaxed, easy, 1-hour ride around town. Experience the fun, friendly camaraderie of the CSBG.
