The events will be on Saturday morning beginning at 9 am, or Sunday afternoon beginning at 1:00 p.m. Rides start 1 hour after the education sessions and will feature various distances, experience levels, and paces. There will also be an option for people to come, sign in, and do an urban ride or ride on their own.
