2016 Monday Night Biking Schedule

THANK YOU TO OUR BIKE RIDE HOSTS!! Many of our rides are jointly hosted by Newington Ski Club. We appreciate the opportunity to ride together with our other club friends. All rides are marked and maps and emergency numbers are provided. Sign in with the bike host and obtain route map. Sign out upon your return. Routes vary with usually a short, medium and long route. Please note: Helmets are required on all rides! Rides usually begin at 6PM but try to arrive early to be ready as some riders start earlier. Usually pizza or a picnic follows the ride with a cost set by the hosts. It’s a great chance to eat and socialize after the ride. Hope you can come out and ride with us! All levels of riders are welcome. Clyde Proch, your Biking Chair.

The schedule is subject to change so check the website and Sunday Squall for updates.

Biking Chairman Clyde Proch at 860 604-7530 or clydescott990@comcast.net.
