Prerequisites: This is a road bike ride. MEC rides are unsupported, so you must be prepared to deal with any minor mechanical issues that may occur, such as a flat tire. Please make sure your bike is in proper working order well before the ride. If you're not sure, bring it in to MEC during regular store hours for a free safety inspection. Our mechanics will inspect it, consult with you, and if it needs service, determine the best package value for your bike's condition.
You must wear an approved helmet and sign a waiver before joining our ride.
All of our rides are no-drop rides. We will go out of our way to make sure that no rider will be left behind.
