Prerequisites: 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.

A hybrid bike, or mountain bike with smoother rolling tires, is suitable for this ride.

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.
