For adults - but re-experience the joy!

Our “NewB” rides are geared for new riders, riders with some experience, and riders who have never ridden in a club atmosphere. We will do a modified version of the scheduled Saturday short ride, (check bikeirvine.org for Saturday Ride schedule) adding as much off-street bike path as available...
We meet at the picnic tables at DCP

No registration & FREE – but do email Bill@BikeIrvine.org so he has an idea of how many are coming! BCI Members who are willing to coach & role model good bicycle driving are welcome to help out… Cycle of Safety members are especially welcome!
