This ride will have two routes from which to choose:

RIDE #1:  26 miles.  We will ride to Johnstown, taking the bike path to Alexandria and return.  This is a primarily flat ride on country blacktop and partly on blacktop bike path.  Restrooms and stores for water and snacks are available in Johnstown and Alexandria.  This is a “Club” ride, which means no minimum speed, and no one left behind!

We will support a “B” pace ride group (which means a riding pace of 18 mph+), and a “C” pace ride group (which means a riding pace of 15 mph+).   “A” riders are welcome as a self-supported ride.

Please RSVP to with the following information:
