JRA Lead Group Rides

Our Group Ride Ethos:

JRA Cycles is committed to building a fun, safe, welcoming, and supportive cycling community - our rides and events have a zero tolerance policy for hate speech of any kind. We encourage riders to build one another up, help each other out, and respect each other as well as those we share the trails with. We expect riders to share our commitment to the stewardship of the trails we ride - pack out what you carry in, stay on marked trails, and not create shortcuts/ridearounds.

Things to Bring:

Rides require, at a minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, tools & flat kit, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and an open mind and a sense of adventure!

Things Not to Bring:

Recreational use of drugs and alcohol are not permitted on JRA Cycles group rides. But, if you did want post-ride beverages... might we suggest seltzer!

Liability Waiver:

Risk is inherent in bicycling and JRA Cycling accepts no responsibility and/or liability for any injuries or damages occurring on any of the listed group rides. By participating, you agree to the terms & conditions set forth in our rider release.
