Time:  6:30PM (Night Ride)

This is not a beginner's ride... but it is a blast and a great way to get in some miles on short winter days!


Join the ride leader for a ~20 mile NIGHT ride on bike trails and downtown city streets in Fredericksburg.  We will depart from the parking lot near Basilico New York Deli at 2577 Cowan Blvd, Fredericksburg, VA 22401 at 6:30pm sharp. 

Mandatory equipment includes a functioning headlight (that can light the road commensurate with your speed/ suggest new LED technology), a tail light, and warm cycling clothes to fend off the winter's cold.  Reflective clothing highly encouraged.  The group will stay together and obey all traffic and trail rules.

Intermediate bike handling skills are required and the ability to stay together as group with an average pace of 15 mph (at night in the city and on trails this is equivalent to about ~18mph on the open road). Expect to be cycling until 8:00 pm as temps drop.

The first couple iterations of this ride will be exploratory and focused on safety; getting new riders used to the two dimensional  world of night riding.

Contact the ride leader with questions before the ride.  The leader reserves the right to prohibit any rider from participating that does not have the proper equipment or skills.
