Mountain biking, year-round

An informal group of Seven Hills members goes mountain biking year-round, usually one day per weekend and sometimes weekday evenings too. Night rides require headlights. Many winter rides are in Rutland State Park. Studded tires (either store-bought or homemade) are recommended for winter. We don't plan far ahead, and we keep people posted by e-mail. To get in the loop, contact Rich Sanborn at chainringrat@charter.net


Selected Saturdays or Sundays

EASY C RIDER

Activity: Road rides, mostly 15-35 miles, C
Location & Time: See www.easycrider.com  
Leader: Dick Goodman, leader@easycrider.com

These are easy-paced Saturday or Sunday rides led by club member Dick Goodman. Time and location varies. Rarely over 35 miles, and Dick doesn't go looking for hills. Check www.easycrider.com each week for the lowdown. Usually the weekend plan is online by Thursday night. Dick discourages phone calls but can be reached at leader@easycrider.com and requests RSVP by 10 p.m. Friday, via e-mail or Facebook group, so he knows who's coming.

Last-minute activities

 

If you want company when you bike, e-mail your plan (time, date, place, activity) to LTolman@LTolman.org and Lynne will forward it to everyone in the club. It’s best to contact Lynne by noontime Thursday for weekend activities.
