Whatever you have, ride it. As long as you can do it safely. The best bike to have for this is a Fat Bike, because you can ride through any weather and almost any surface. We will have less single track and more streets and pathways. Kinda like our Easy Peasy ride, but in the Fall/Winter/Spring. We may go anywhere from 20km to 40km Average moving speed could be 15-24kph depending and the environment.
You must wear a helmet.
You must bring what you need for on the road repairs so you are self-sufficient.
You must bring fluids and a snack.
You must wear proper clothing for a 2+ hour ride. layer up!
You must stay with the group. No venturing off on your own once the ride starts.
You still need your MCA license after your first ride.
