BFSC Ride Schedule - October 6 & 7

We are starting the BFSC Tuesday Night Guana rides next week – Tuesday, Oct 9th. Everyone parks under the 210 bridge and we roll out promptly at 6:00pm. We are all riding a variety of: mountain bikes, urban assault bikes and cyclocross bikes.

Lights are required. It’s a great “high tempo – high heart rate” ride that helps maintain your fitness level through the winter. This is an out and back 20+ miles course, so if you get dropped, you will be picked back up on the faster group's return.

We had a great turnout last year and expect more participation this season. Hope to see you all out there on Tuesday night at 6:00pm!

The Tuesday/Thursday County Line 6:30 PM night rides have almost finished for this season due to early sunset and darkness. If you are still wanting to road ride, you can check it out to see if anyone shows up for the ride.

The Tuesday/Thursday 6:30 AM morning rides from the PV Inn & Club new start time is now at 6:45 AM. Continue to check this BFSC Blog and Facebook page for time changes as sunrise continues to be later rising.

If you have not received your 2012 BFSC Socks & Arm Warmers, check back on the BFSC Blog and Facebook Page for the next Pick Up time at Open Road Beach Store.
