Training Rides

First shakedown ride of KC Bicycle Touring on the 19th!
These rides are "shakedown" rides to help you become comfortable riding with your gear and your touring bikes! We will give you tips on packing your gear!
Our next ride is March 22nd!
Great practice for your first Bike Camping overnight by joining us this Saturday for training/ practice ride! We will meet at Family Bicycles, LLC at 1pm and head out for a 40 mile ride on our loaded bicycles. This ride will be on paved roads and multi use trails( Indian and Tomahawk Creek Trails). This is a great way to become acquainted with loaded Bicycle Touring with minimal traffic conditions. We will give you tips on touring and this will be a fun multi faceted ride with a few short rest stops along the way. Expect to be on the ride 4-5 hours max. 
To ride please have: water, snacks, helmet, spare tube, load your bike with your camping gear or weight, and come ready to ride! Theme of this ride...Wilderness 
Ride will end at Coffee Girls just 2 blocks from Family Bicycles.
ALL RIDERS MUST HAVE HELMET, SPARE TUBE/ PUMP, AND WATER if you do not you will not be able to join the ride for safety reasons, also you must be fit enough to ride 40 miles. We reserve the right to turn away any rider who we feel are not prepared, no exceptions. Better to be safe! :)
See you there!
March 19th ride was a blast!
