Are you a rider who would like to start riding on the road or join us on group rides? Perhaps you've ridden a bit on a rail trail, or have limited experience riding on the road or in groups. This workshop and ride would be appropriate for those who know how to ride, but would like to gain skill and confidence with using your gears, how to approach a hill, making turns, taking the lane, signaling, and proper etiquette while riding with a group. We will also do a basic review of the important parts of your bike and gear that can make riding more comfortable. After our workshop, AMC bike leaders will lead a short (approximately 10 mile) ride to practice riding skills. Road or hybrid bike in good working order, a helmet, and a water bottle required.
Mike has been biking since junior high and has been leading rides with the AMC since he moved here in the 1990's. He leads rides from evening rides to local day trips to regional weekends to week long tours in New England and in Tuscany and the Czech Republic for AMCs Adventure Travel Program.
