Ride Start Times and Leader

Although weekend rides have predefined routes, they usually do not have predefined ride leaders.  Consequently, any given pace-group may or may not choose to designate a ride leader.
  • 8:30 AM  -- A/B riders
  • 9:00 AM  -- C/Alt C
  • 9:30 AM - TBA -- Social/Social+ 

Special Notes to New Members / New Riders / Guests:
These are self supported rides:  Bring your own hydration fluids. If you aren't sure of your group riding skills, please start with the Social riders and ask for the basics.

We intend to take individual photographs of everyone with their bike before the rides.  Riders should plan on arriving 30 minutes early to make sure they get their picture taken after gearing up. We will also be taking our Annual CTC Members Group Photo so please wear your CTC Club Jerseys.

"Family" riders can have their individual photos taken after they return from their ride.

Bike Swap Meet:

There will be a swap meet for those looking to sell or trade gear so gather up your items and have them price marked. It will be cash only sales.

  • If you have something bike related that you are no longer using, such as a bike, bike parts, accessories, or apparel, put a tag on it and bring it to the picnic! 
  • The tag should contain the following:
    • Name
    • Price
    • Phone number
    • If it's a part or a tool, please also name what it is.
  • You negotiate the final price -- or actually swap an item for something else!
  • Kim Bickel is your contact for all swap meet questions.
