Thank you to our bike ride hosts! Many of our rides are jointly hosted by Mountain Laurel Ski Club as well as Meriden Ski Club members. We appreciate the opportunity to ride together with our other club friends. All rides are marked and maps and emergency numbers are provided. Routes vary with usually a short, medium and long route.
Rides usually begin at 6pm, but try to arrive early to be ready as some riders start earlier. Usually Pizza or a Picnic is arranged for after the ride, with a cost set by the hosts. It’s a great chance to eat and socialize after the ride. Hope you can come out and ride with us!
