The Welcome Ride
Sunday, August 29, 2021, 7:30 AM
TREK Ft. Myers
8291 Dani Dr.
Fort Myers, FL 33966
CRBC Weekly Ride
Registration is not Required
The Sunday Welcome Ride starts in the parking lot at the TREK Bicycle Store in Ft. Myers (8291 Dani Drive, SE corner of Colonial and Six Mile Cypress). Be ready to ride at 7:30am.
Riders should be able to maintain 14-16 mph for an hour and a half no matter what style of bike they may ride. Riders should have also ridden the Minions Rides where basic group riding techniques are taught. We ride mostly on the path system surrounding the shop and vary the route each week - sometimes to Lakes Park, John Yarbrough Linear Park, Gateway, and the old Airport, to name a few destinations - and the distances will range from 20 to 25 miles. On the first Sunday of each month we ride to Page Field and attend the Experimental Aircraft Association's (EAA) Pancake Breakfast ($6 each) - always a great time! This is a “NO DROP” ride, so we'll make sure you get back to the shop!
Please observe local COVID guidelines in effect at the time of the ride. Your Ride Leaders will emphasize this and have other comments prior to the ride start.
Helmets are required! Daytime riding lights are recommended! Contact Steve Rodgers at 239-839-7926 or the TREK store at 239-931-6690 for additional info and watch for postings and weather updates on Facebook at CRBC Ride Group.
