Interested in Cycling?

NC3Cyclers welcome anyone wanting to improve their riding skills by having fellowship and riding alongside like-minded cyclists.  Whether you need the lite ride, the more energetic middle ride or the fast paced hilly ride, we can help train you to reach your riding goals.  The group rides on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays (usually) at 9:00am from the Ralphs/Poinsettia Shopping Center Starbucks on Avenida Encinas include short pre-ride talks (bike safety, hydration, ride nutrition, drafting, etc) and offer longer clinics on bike maintenance, tire changing, and bike handling skills. Be sure to wear a helmet.  Please send Tom Nelson an .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) if you are interested or planning to ride.  Tom is also looking for additional ride leaders so we can have various sub groups based on peoples cycling experience, goals and current levels of fitness.

Note:  If we have rain we will cancel and plan to meet next time.
