2020 Community Rides

2020 Community Rides

Eagle Valley Behavioral HealthLet’s get spinning. With safety and camaraderie in mind, Sacred Cycle is hosting Community Rides – Mondays 530pm in the Roaring Fork Valley and Wednesdays 530pm in Eagle County through the end of September. Our goal is for a fun, safe, no-pressure, no-drop ride where community members can connect and make new riding friends. Open to the public for adult women and men of all levels. Rides will be supported with a lead guide and tail rider so no one is left behind. You do not have to be a survivor to attend.

Visit our Facebook Event Page or see below for the weekly trailhead location. Rides are donation-based (cash please) and typically 90 minutes. Please come self-sufficient (mask/buff, hydration, fuel, windbreaker, sunscreen, and a spare tube) arriving at 5:15pm to sign participant waivers and learn the route. Plan to hit the trail at 530pm sharp. Please mask up for our welcome chat. We’ll be sure to keep a safe 15′ space between riders on the trails.

Thanks to Eagle Valley Behavioral Health for partnering with us on these rides. Rides will be held weekly through the end of September.
