STATIONARY BIKES!

This year we'll be riding stationary bikes!  50 bikes.  2 sessions - (8a - 12p) and (1p - 5p). Teams will ride in spin relays with team captains assigning ride times to each rider on the team.  Each team can have up to 12 members.  If you have more than 12, consider dividing your group into multiple teams.

Kids can ride too!  Bring your child's bike along.  We will have at least 5 stationary bike stands for kids.  They can ride as part of a team or as an individual.  

Sign-in will begin at 7:30a.
