Weekend Rides
Registration is not Required
Come join the first Saturday ride of the season!  It is an easy up and back route to Trumansburg. The majority of the route is on the Black Diamond Trail, and if you do not wish to do the whole ride you can turn around at the end of the trail and head back to to the start.

We'll gather at the Boatyard Grill patio at approximately 12:30 after the ride to enjoy the sunshine and discuss upcoming recreational weekend rides.
