Safety and fun are a priority on all Free Group Rides! Families and minors are welcome to join us.

If you would like to bring your family on a Free Group Ride please contact the Ride Leader (you can find the ride leader’s contact info in the ride announcement on Cascade’s calendar) at least 24 hours before the ride start. The Ride Leader will be able to advise you if the route is suitable for minors.

Family rides

Family oriented rides are held throughout the year. Look for rides with descriptions that say "family friendly" or search our calendar for Family / Kids rides. Want to see more family friendly rides? We are always looking for interested volunteers to help us grow our program. Consider becoming a ride leader.
