THINGS TO REMEMBER:
All riders should be prepared to do minor repairs on the road/trail (e.g., change a flat)
Due to the challenging nature of most club dirt supported rides, groups will invariably form and split up en route depending on riders levels of fitness, training goals, etc.
For your safety, a helmet is mandatory on PAA rides.
Check the forum and event page before the ride, in case of inclement weather which may result in a change of the route or cancellation of the event.
Guests are welcome (numbers are limited), but must also RSVP
