BACK to the BASICS Series – getting comfortable in the saddle (again)!
Are you ready to get on the bike and stretch your legs, but not too sure you are up to the pace or distance of the regular club rides?? This 6-week series will start on bike paths and back roads at a relaxed pace. We want you to get comfortable on your bike, and through gradual increases in distance, terrain and skill training, to develop your riding level so you can join our regular rides with confidence and enjoyment! Come for all or join when your can!
These rides are open to KVC and non-KVC members. However, non-KVC members are expected to join the club after a 2-ride trial, if they decide to continue to participate in these back-to-basics or regular club rides.
- Tuesday evenings @ 6, June 14 to July 19
- Start and end – Martello Tower (King St. West at Barrie St)
- End Time – 8 PM (max)
