July is HOT! HOT! HOT! So we avoid the sun and ride at NIGHT! This month, and this month only, the group ride starts at 9:00PM! Riding at night beats the heat, and it allows us to demonstrate the importance of Riding Bright and staying visible. By law, you must ride with a white front light visible from 300ft. and at least a red rear reflector visible from 300ft. Those are minimums. We can do better that! So have fun with it, and drape your bike in as many lights as you can find! Again, the ride starts at 9:00PM, you MUST use lights!

BikeAthens Group Rides are held on the last Friday of the month, from March to October, starting at 6:00 pm at City Hall. Bring water! All rides end at Little Kings Shuffle Club!
