Mid-Week Biking with Neal Pisanti

bicycling The 2024 bicycling season is here. Our members meet mid-week for trips that are usually range from 10 to 30 miles. Most rides are announced by e-mail on Sunday night for the following Wednesday or an alternate day, weather permitting.**Helmets are required, and water or another hydration source strongly recommended.** Also, riders should carry a spare inner tube and any tools needed to change a flat tire. Sometimes we meet afterwards for lunch, or perhaps for a glass of wine at a winery. Come ride with us. No one will be left behind. E-mail Neal at nealmichael@hotmail.com . It is important that riders follow safety protocols, such as signaling turns, calling out hazards, approaching cars, etc. Refer to the following League of American Bicyclists (LAB) website for the following safety tips: LAB Safety Tips
