Repeats every week every Wednesday until Wed Aug 29 2018 except Wed May 16 2018, Wed Jul 25 2018.
5/2/18 5:30pm

This year NW CT NEMBA will be combining our Monday and Thursday rides into one ride on Wednesday each week.  We expect to split into 2 or more groups - one social paced and the other more advanced, with the option to create more groups as needed.

 

We're also switching up the locations a bit this year, by adding more spots into the regular rotation.  Don't worry, the Soccer Fields and Sessions Woods will still be in the mix, but we'll also be making regular visits to Harwinton, Cowles, and Nepaug.  The exact rotation of locations is still being worked on, so check back here, or our Facebook page, for more details as we get closer to May.

 

Please plan on arriving by 5:30, with the intention to be rolling out of the lot by 5:45pm.
