get your heart in gear

THE FUN RIDE (12 MI Route)
For the more casual riders among us ... a fun ride along mostly protected bike paths with volunteers along the way; lots to see and celebrate.
THE STRAND RIDE (25 mi ROUTE)
A little further, this route also starts at Swiss Village and winds further up the Strand along bike paths with a quick stop at the beach for selfies. YOU CAN DO IT - NO RIDER LEFT "STRAND-ED"!
THE OLYMPIAN RIDE (40 MI ROUTE)
Not for the faint at heart ... but definitely for those training for other rides, or wanting a challenge, this route - with inland and coastal sprints - will definitely "get your heart in gear!"
If you can't or don't want to ride, join us as a virtual cyclist or volunteer!
