Monday Night Social Rides Are Underway

It’s summer., and that means that Bicycle Friendly Farmington’s Monday Night Social Ride are in full swing! We’d love to have you join us!

Each Monday, cyclists of all ages and abilities meet meet in the at the bike racks in the Unionville Shopping Center (across from the CVS) and ride on the Farmington River Trail or Farmington Canal Heritage Trail. Rides typically are 12-18 miles in length, but you are welcome to start the ride with us and turn around at anytime. We’ll pace ourselves to accomodate the entire group, so no rider is left behind.

We meet each Monday evening at 6:15 pm for a pre-ride safety check and sign-in, and depart for the trail at 6:30 pm. Distance and direction for each evening’s ride is based on the desires of the group that assembles. We return by sunset and often convene for a post-ride frozen yogurt (c’mon, you earned it!).

In case of inclement weather, check the BFF page on Facebook for updates. We also appreciate it when you indicate your desire to attend a ride on our Facebook page so that we know to expect you.

See you Monday night!
