When you go on one of these trips, wear a helmet, have a spare inner tube or two, tools with you to remove your wheel, have lights when needed and hydration/snacks appropriate for the trip. It is also expected you will be riding a bicycle in decent condition and that you have properly trained for these longer trips. We will establish a bike repair day for any who wants it. Watch for details.
