Hüphie Hauler Happy Hour Group Rides
Spring through Fall meet at the Gear Hub on Monday evenings to ride with a fun and casual group of cyclists. Rides are typically about 15 – 20 miles long and often include a stop for ice cream, tacos, or a beverage. This is a no drop ride, but expect to ride about 12 -15 mph. Lights mandatory at dusk and after dark!
Meets Mondays at the Garage at 5:30. Ride leaves around 5:45. (Spring, Summer, Fall)
Thursday Trail Rides
Every Thursday in the Spring and Summer join Gear Hub friends, volunteers, and staff for a fun trail ride. Fat bikes and rigid mountain bikes welcome! This is a no drop ride, but expect a quick and spirited pace. Bring lights, as rides will often go until dusk and sometimes just after dark.
We won’t ride trails if it’s raining, and sometimes we may opt to ride the roads if it’s not raining but the trails are wet.
Meets Thursdays at the Garage at 6. Ride leaves around 6:15. (Spring and Summer)
