Community Rides: 2018 Schedule

This is the compilation webpage for updates on the status of each and every Community Ride in the 2018 series, e.g. registration links, ride cancellation notices, GPS data, and special details which pertain uniquely to a Ride.

SAFETY GUIDELINES:  A Safety talk is given before each Ride, but it is a good idea to review the Safety Guidelines for Community Rides (posted in sidebar) prior to attending each Ride.

BASIC INFORMATION for Community Riders includes Registration and Cancellation policies applying to all Rides.
