Some key 2018 ride and event dates

Here are a select number of special event rides happening in 2018, to help you plan your season. The first date to note is our first official club ride, on April 7. That's the day we lift the fender rule, and the meeting time changes to 8:30 am, at 4th and Alma. Until then, the fender (end fender extension) rule is in effect, and rides meet at 4th and Alma at 9 every Saturday.
