Wednesday

North Chagrin (NC)

Season Begins first Wednesday of April
Location North Chagrin Reservation

The North Chagrin B ride follows a regular route through the suburbs of Cuyahoga County before visiting some of the Emerald Necklace. If riding the same route each week is not your thing there is a C ride with a different route each week, or, a D ride, affectionately known as the "Alt C" ride, as well as a social pace ride whose distance and route are determined based on rider ability.  Afterwards, similar to the Concord location, many riders meet at The "Wright Place" or "The Firehouse" in Willoughby Hills.
