Pam Thomas
Weekend Ride
Registration is not Required
The Bluegrass Cycling Club and West 6th have agreed to co-sponsor Pedaling for a Purpose again for 2018. Today we will be riding Broke Spoke

Education Session -
Allison Maggard will tell us about AMBUCS - an organization that focuses on creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities. The BCC has provided funding to help AMBUCS provide bikes to kids. The presentation will include the presentation of a new bike to a family - for that part we will move back to the rollergirls space!

Rides offered - We will have group rides with leaders, but you will also have the option to come, sign in, and do something on your own ... Doesn't matter, miles will still count!!! If you plan to ride on your own, you can come and sign in anytime between 8 - 11... Just time it so you're done by 1ish.

Rides with leaders start at 9:00 am

Ride leaders and pace groups:

Novice/C on the Trail - Ed Surbaugh and Bill Sturm
C Road - Wanda Bertram and Peggy Littrell -
