Weekend Social Rides

Bicycle Friendly Farmington hosts periodic Social Bike Rides during the spring, summer, and fall.

Our social rides introduce new riders to the wonderful system of road, bikeways, and rails trails that serve our town of Farmington, CT. Riders of all ages and skill levels are welcome to join us–please see the description of each ride for approximate distances, skill levels, and times.

Our bike ride leaders will brief the group on safe bicycling and proper equipment prior to each trip. Inclement weather cancels (please check Facebook for updates). Contact us with any questions.
