Rain Policy – if the roads are wet and/or rain is expected, then the ride is cancelled. Use this method on the ‘morning of’: if your driveway is wet, it’s cloudy and the forecast has a 20%+ chance of rain – no ride. If it’s drying out or sunny – come on down, we’ll decide at the start.

Check the Trek Bicycle Superstore website for weekly specials and training updates.
