Group Info: With this being our largest group ride, we break down into groups based on average pace (ability) and rider experience level. Please review the Ride Guidelines for descriptions of each group. If you are new to group riding we do ask that you ride with the "C" group until you are more comfortable in this environment. The "D" group is a base where many riders start and accomplish on their own or at the Wednesday Development Ride. With that in mind there is not usually a "D" group on Saturdays.
Safety: Helmets are required for all riders regardless of experience level. A signed or electronically submited ride waiver are required for all non-member riders.
Location: Park Start/Finish

The Bicycle Donations Program
The Bicycle Donations Program is designed to support families and children throughout the year with new and refurbished bicycles. Applications are taken and reviewed for monthly donations. The program also supports Senior Citizens, Mentally Challenged persons, and to supply transportation to those working and in need of support.
At the end of each year, the “Annual Christmas Bicycle Giveaway” donates hundreds of bicycles to families who would otherwise not be able to purchase one. This giveaway not only supports Cumberland County, but 6 surrounding counties. These counties include Hoke, Harnett, Robeson, Scotland, Bladen and Lee.
