Ride Directors



Welcome!


Our Mission is to promote and encourage safe bicycling and cross-country skiing variously for recreation, health and transportation purposes. To that end we provide instructions in all aspects of road cycling and cross-country skiing. We strive to be a very active club and welcome your input to achieving that goal. Cross-country skiing is primarily on Saturdays or Sundays. Occasionally, multi-day x-c ski trips are taken to Wisconsin to take advantage of better skiing conditions.


We’d love to have you join us, and you do not have to be a member to go on a bike ride or ski with us. (Of course, we expect regular participants to be members.) Club members have access to our membership directory and other member-only areas of this web site. Current annual membership is $15/individual or $20/family.



We've had a full schedule of Sunday rides and really appreciate those who volunteered to lead them and all who joined the rides.
Always watch the Event Calendar and for an email of any late changes to starting times, etc.

We'd be happy to add new rides to our schedule any time there is sufficient interest. You can email the Ride Director via the Contacts page on this website.
