We are in for a cold day on Monday morning for this ride. Riders are strongly advised to dress warmly by wearing multiple layers. We recommend wearing warm head, face, & neck coverings, warm outer gloves with a second pair of liner gloves, double up on warm socks and wear long johns or tights. Warm boots are highly suggested. Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions. Click on the link below for REI's expert advice for how to stay warm in the winter. This ride may be curtailed or canceled in the event weather or road conditions will cause the ride to be unsafe. In the event the bike ride is canceled, we will still host our program at 10am to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King. In addition, we may still visit Big Marsh by driving to the park. For detailed updates over the weekend, we will post here on social media and on our website linked below.
