  1. Good morning, say I am wondering how to get a ride posted on the calendar for April 2017

  2. Hi!
    My biking partner & I intended to ride the “Bike Around tge Buttes” ride but see that it’s date has changed from April 28th to Easter Sunday, April 21st. Is this date change correct?

    Originally there were 4 distanes & we were going for the 65-miles. That is no longer listed. Why was it removed?

    Thank you,

  3. I double checked, and Bike Around the Buttes is scheduled for April 27 this year (2019). There are still 4 route options, including the 65-miler that you’re interested in. Good luck!
