Rides Committee 2021

 

Rides committee meetings are 5:30-7:30 p.m. the last Monday of the month (except May - next to last Monday). Meetings are open to anyone. Contact the rides committee chair if you have a particular item that you would like to be placed on the meeting agenda. The meetings are being held virtually, but we hope to return soon to the Cascade Bicycling Center (conference room) located at 7787 62nd Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98115.
