Beginner Rides

Beginner Rides 

Beginner rides are a great way to find some local single track, fellow riders, or just dust off your bike and get it out there again.  Everyone is welcome from first timers, weekend warriors, patient experts looking to do a recovery ride, etc.  Kids are welcome with a parental chaperone.  Questions or comments about an upcoming right?  Email beginners@cambc.org.
