You've been riding all year, and its time for something new! The fall fun series rides are lesser-ridden routes for late-season riders. These are social allure libre (at your own pace) rides. This allows more time to socialize with your fellow riders on the bike and lets you ride with the people who are the best fit for you. They have widely spaced regroups at scenic vistas and cafes so that the whole group (faster and slower riders) can stay together while riding their most comfortable pace. The ride leader will sweep.
There will be a mix of old and new routes for 2019.
