Our Winter Wednesdays rides take place from October to April. They typically start at 6:15pm from various locations in the Lower Huron and Willow Metroparks. Periodically, a chase group will start around 6:30pm and catch-up with the first group. There are always open restrooms at our starting points. We utilize a variety of routes to keep it interesting. Riding surfaces will fluctuate between paved park trails, single track, gravel roads and snow, depending on the mood. But, our main focus is on gravel roads for the entire season. This is a no-drop ride, but we encourage riders to push their limits to earn their base miles going into spring. Headlights and tail lights are required. You'll experience riding like no other on these sorties.
