There will be water and possibly some coffee/sports drink available before the ride, but riders should make sure they’ve eaten before the event or bring along a snack that’s easy to eat on the bike.

This ride is very beginner friendly and we encourage everyone to bring a friend! We have a no rider left behind policy.

There will be a post ride gathering at Chrysalis where we’ll provide bike parking. There will be refreshments available to purchase supplied by the Froth House cafe. (pastries, veggies & hummus, and more)

Julia, the owner of Chrysalis will also be offering discounted salon services for all attendees. There will also be free use of the aqua massage table and some other pampering for after the ride, such as head massages with fresh herbs.

A a raffle with items from Rapha, Yurbuds, Saris, Topeak, and some other fun businesses will also take place.

The ride itself is FREE, but you may want to bring some money for lunch if you stay for the festivities.

Parking is available on First Street, just up block from the building Chrysalis is based in (there’s a sign posted where the lot is located). There’s also extensive on street parking that will be FREE because the event is on a Sunday.
