You have a bike.  You want to ride.  But you're new or just getting back into it and you want company.  Join us!

 


THIS MONDAY ONLY -- START @ Bike Clark County, 1604 Main St, Vancouver –                                         Meet in the parking lot behind the shop.

We will learn how to ride over the I-5 bridge to Rose City! About HALF the route is off-road path!
How to get on and off the bike/pedestrian bridge path starting in Vancouver and returning
How to connect to trails/streets after you've crossed Hayden Island  
Expo Center - how to buy a ticket and board the MAX with your bike (we won't actually do it)
Delta Park - how to catch the C-TRAN bus here to Vancouver: it takes you over the bridge to downtown (in case you're too tired or the weather is bad and you don't want to ride)
How to ride to Interstate Ave/Denver (bike lanes) and catch the Columbia Slough Trail to Delta Park back to Vancouver


Tonight we’re out to learn how to safely get to everyday destinations on our bikes!
Register and see you there!


Lots more info below, but here's what you really need to know: 
***We want to ride with YOU. 
***We want to help YOU reach YOUR goals whether it's commuting, casual afternoon family spins, or our annual Ride Around Clark County . . . July 24, 2021 - 7/24/2021.
***We hope to make new friends, starting with YOU.


Bring a bike in good working order (pump those tires), wear your helmet (REQUIRED), and tuck in some water, and a tube that fits your wheel.  Have questions?  Bring those, too!

Before your first ride, visit your friendly local bike shop for expert advice on what your bike might need.
